    I'd suggest a humanist sans (high x-height, low contrast, as open apertures as possible), for example Fedra, Alright Sans, Comenia Sans or Tabac Sans :) don't forget to loosen the tracking (+10-20) as well, it helps big time in really small sizes.

    For a sans I'd recommend either Brandon Text or Effra. For a serif I'd recommend Tisa or Skolar.

    The Archer font family is great in small.

    Vectora

    Vectora was an old classic sans for small sizes - an Adrian Frutiger design.

    Din Next Rounded works very well, the softer terminals make it very legible when used small

    Large x-height fonts it's the first logical choice, but not the only one. Gotham works very well but Futura, even with the small x-height, has good readability

    Din Pro is a good choice.
    Another one is Antenna.

    Another vote for Brandon Text here. Works like a charm.
