For a stationary Poisson–Voronoi tessellation in Euclidean d-space and for \({k\in \{1,\dots,d\}}\), we consider the typical k-dimensional face with respect to a natural centre function. We express the distribution of this typical k-face in terms of a certain Poisson process of closed halfspaces in a k-dimensional space. Then we show that, under the condition of large inradius, the relative boundary of the typical k-face lies, with high probability, in a narrow spherical annulus.
