Spiekermann House Numbers on Sale at DWR

Stephen Coles

Here’s a piece of news that intersects my two obsessions: home design and typography. Design Within Reach is offering a rare substantial discount on Erik Spiekermann’s House Numbers. What were once $35 a piece are now $9.99. This not cheap-o plastic tack-on hardware. They are original numbers from a type design legend, crafted in materials like marine-grade steel and aluminum. Any of the four styles could mark a modern home with pride.

At under ten smacks per numeral this might be the first time you can afford something at DWR. But hurry quick, some numbers are out of stock.

In other Spiekermann news, his long awaited companion to FF Meta (the Helvetica of the ’90s) was released this week. Say hello to FF Meta Serif.

Update, Oct. 2016 — DWR no longer offers the house numbers, but Spiekermann himself was able to acquire the remaining stock and you can buy them directly from his p98a shop.
