In the latest edition of our ‘At Home With’ series we visited the home of type designer and lecturer Albert-Jan Pool.

For about 20 years, Pool has been involved in the development of FF DIN, which today is one of our most popular font families. In 2011 the Museum of Modern Art in New York added FF DIN to its permanent collection further establishing the family as one of the most worldly recognised and respected. He is also responsible for adding FF DIN Round to the family and also created another technically orientated typeface: FF OCR-F.

Pictured here in his country house where he resides with his wife and daughter, we see evidence of Pool’s unabiding love of typography throughout the tasteful rooms. From the rows upon rows of typographic books to quirky and inspirational type design pieces hung about the walls this really is the home of a type fanatic.
