Funkisfika for the whole family

Back to functionalism – The Technical Museum now opens completely renovated premises where lunch bag lunch, dressing cabinets and toilet visits can be accommodated in the funkis house drawing room. With technology-historical wallpapers, form-strong funkis objects and Corbusier tiles, the fika time becomes one of the most important stops of the museum day.

Pancake rolls, cheese sandwich, a fruit or hot chocolate – no matter what you pack as a food bag promises the Technical Museum’s new food bag room a flavourful experience beyond the ordinary. In connection with the entrance hall, large bright areas now open where the house’s history may shine through.

The premises accommodate both small tables, larger family tables and a small children’s section with small furniture, wooden railroad track and play mat. From the museum’s collections, toys and other everyday objects from the 1930s, 40s and 50s are shown. The walls are clad with patterns inspired by technology history – turbines, propellers and prams, but also left behind objects that have given imprint on the wallpapers in the cloakroom with patterns by Jonas Banker.

– This place accommodates everything that must only be and function, but we have chosen to take it one step further, and make it necessary for an experience in itself, says Lars Paulsson, project manager. We believe that it can be a natural fika stop on the Djurgården promenade – especially when the new bridge over the Djurgårdskanalen is ready.
