Kabel is a sans-serif typeface designed by German designer Rudolf Koch, and released by the Klingspor foundry from 1927 onwards. Kabel belongs to the “geometric” style of sans-serifs, which was becoming popular in Germany at the time of Kabel’s creation.
Based loosely on the structure of the circle and straight lines, it nonetheless applies a number of unusual design decisions, such as a delicately low x-height (although larger in the bold weight), a quirky tilted ‘e’ and irregularly angled terminals, to add delicacy and an irregularity suggesting stylish calligraphy, of which Koch was an expert. A variety of rereleases and digitisations have been created.
Kabel font style is geometric sans-serif typeface which is designed by German typeface designer Rudolf Kich, and released by the Klingspor foundry in 1927. The font face was not named after any specific cable, although the Zugspitze calbe car had been completed in 1926, and a Berlin-Vienna facsimilie telegraphy line opened in 1927.
