Last Thursday was the official launch of Funkis, the latest addition to The Strand’s Melbourne store portfolio. Being in the heart of the ‘new’ retail district of the CBD, Funkis’s philosophy is to bring timeless design and functional pieces to various aspects of our lives. All the products on offer have a strong Swedish influence that are distinctive, alluring, and best of all, affordable.
From the very popular sandal and clocks range – which have been a part of their collection since 1996 – to the slick assortment of homewares, Funkis offers an unique take to living and fashion. Originally based in Sydney since 1996, Funkis has blossom within the Australian retail market. It had originally sourced and imported Swedish and Scandinavian designs, and then later grown to create their own products that are exclusively sold at Funkis.
The design element doesn’t just stop with the products, but is encapsulated within the store layout. The slick design of the store feels more like a modern living space – homely, alluring at every angle and complemented with strong mood lighting.
Whether its thoughtful gifts for that special someone or bring ‘funktionalism’ (Swedish word for functionalism) to your living space, Funkis has got you covered.
