Domotika was first designed for Zetafonts by Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini in 2018, trying to translate the modernist and humanist ideals into typographic form, looking for a conversation between the classical and the contemporary, the hand-made and the technological. Following the motto of Mies Van Der Roe and Gustave Flaubert (“God is in the details”), Domotika takes inspiration from architectural practice, with a pragmatic attention to functionality that doesn’t forget aesthetics. Its design juxtaposes the open humanist letterforms to slight calligraphic curve endings that marries perfect readability to expressive design. The name itself of the typeface is an homage to the science of living comfortably, with its reference to “domotics”, robotic technology for use in the home.
In 2021 Andrea Tartarelli, who originally designed Domotika italics, completely reworked the original type family adding over five hundred glyphs to the original set and extending the language coverage to include over two hundred languages using latin, Cyrillic and greek alphabets. Open type features have been also expanded, including positional numbers, small caps, ligatures, contextual alternates and stylistic sets, as well as tabular, lining and old-style numerals.
