Unknown geometric typeface

Evening,

being somewhat more schooled towards "traditional" typography I have no idea what this typeface could be, yet at the same time I'm certain I've seen it before. Obviously the colorful artifacts are added by the designer, still I recognize the typeface as it is -- without any proof that it does actually exist.

I've chosen not to rotate the attached source image, due to respect for the designer (Kouglof, France). Most thankful for any input,

Jocke

I think it was based on Variex.

Thank you very much, Akira. Truly appreciate it.

If you ever come around to the cold north of Sweden, drinks are on me.
