Suggestions to compliment these objects?

I am developing a tech brand and one of the primary elements are these blocks (one not shown will be the logo), but I'm having a really hard time finding a typeface to compliment them. I explored many san sarifs and even threw Didot in just to see... to no avail. I am at a loss, frankly.

I did make some headway by not using heavy weights. Throwing in a light Dicot (not sure where this came from... can't find info on origins). But I feel like the swell? fillet? (the round corners) aren't doing me any favors.

Not too much: name of company, and typical stationary system.
A secondary typeface for body will be selected/suggested according to the logo.

oooh... Axia, how you swoon me. Thank you for the suggestions. I'll plug it in a see how things shake out. I see what you're looking for visually and I'll attempt to find similar styles. You're experience is humbling.

Eboy or Minimum might make a good accompanying wordmark.

Depending on how obviously techy you want to be, monospace or monospace-looking faces might be useful.

Eboy Beta intriques me. I like that the "i" retains small-cap. Thank you for sharing Nick.
