The Futuro House

The Futuro House was conceived by Matti Suuronen in 1968 as a "portable" ski chalet. It is an iconic piece of architecture and this site is devoted to documenting the history of the Futuro and the current status and whereabouts of the remaining examples.

About "Things Futuro" | TheFuturoHouse.com Collection

Our interest in the Futuro House quickly became our passion for the Futuro House and eventually, perhaps some might say, our obsession with the Futuro House. We collect books, magazines, collectibles and other items that relate to the Futuro House in some way. As is the case with all collections it started off relatively small with easy to obtain pieces but over time it has become quite extensive and worthy of "Futuro Nuts".

The collection contains all manner of items from unique original pieces from the early days of Futuro through contemporary mass-produced items and everything in between. The collection currently comprises a little under 450 physical items plus various "digital" items (in particular digital copies of newspaper articles) and these pages are effectively the collection's "catalog".

Additional items can also be found in The Charles Cleworth Futuro House Archive and in several smaller collections and archives.

As is the case with most collectors we are always looking to add to this collection so if you have Futuro related items for sale or know of any Futuro items for sale please let us know.

Dombai Futuro - 1978 Mint Cover

CNES Anniversary Cover | Purchased 071917

PhilexFrance82 was a philately exhibition held at the CNIT (Centre Des Nouvelles Industries Et Technologies) in La Défense in Paris, France in 1982. It was one of a series of such events with others taking place in 1989 and 1999. At the time the Saint-Ouen Futuro was located outside the CNIT and a number of philately related items commemorating Philexfrance82 featured the Futuro in some way.

On 051582 France issued a stamp commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Centre National D'études Spatiales (National Space Studies Centre). This particular cover of this stamp is dated 062082 and so it is not technically a "first day cover".

The cover features the 051582 stamp with a Philexfrance82 cancellation. The envelope displays a photo of the CNIT and, though small, the Futuro is clearly visible in front of the CNIT. We are assuming that this was some kind of a "souvenir" cover available for people attending Philexfrance82. The same photo can also be seen on this cover

PhilexFrance82 "Presentation Folder" | Purchased 062917

When we saw this item on E-Bay e were not actually sure exactly what it was other than it was clearly associated with PhilexFrance82 and it showed the Saint-Ouen Futuro during its days outside the CNIT (Centre Des Nouvelles Industries Et Technologies) in La Défense in Paris, France.

Being avid collectors of all "Things Futuro" knowing exactly what the item was was actually secondary to the fact it showed a Futuro and so we bid on and subsequently purchased the item.

PhilexFrance82 was one of a series of philately exhibitions that took place in France in 1982, 1989 and 1999. There are a number of different philately related items that commemorate PhilexFrance82 that feature the Saint-Ouen Futuro in some way.

Once we "got our hands on" this item we found it was a "self-described" limited edition (#53 of 250) "artistic sheet" (according to Google Translate; we would characterize it as a "presentation folder") that includes examples of six different stamps issued by France to mark PhilexFrance82 (though there are ten stamps total with four being duplicates).

The stamps are cancelled though each has a different date between 061082 and 062182; pure conjecture on our part but we are wondering if this was an item someone attending PhilexFrance82 would have purchased and then collected the various cancellations on the different days of the exhibition.

The stamps themselves have nothing to do with Futuro but the item rightfully gains it's place in this collection because the front cover of the folder features a photograph of the CNIT which includes the Futuro (to the lower right).

1982 Republique De Djibouti Cover | Purchased 062917

PhilexFrance was a series of philately exhibitions held in France in 1982, 1989 and 1999. A number of first day covers and other philately related items associated with PhilexFrance82 (061182-062182) featured the Saint-Ouen Futuro that was located outside the CNIT (Centre Des Nouvelles Industries Et Technologies) in La Défense in Paris, France at that time.

This particular item is a nice Republique De Djibouti first day cover dated 051082 with two stamps commemorating PhilexFrance82.

PhilexFrance82 was held at CNIT (Centre Des Nouvelles Industries Et Technologies) in La Défense in Paris, France. At the time the Saint-Ouen Futuro was located outside the CNIT.

One of the two stamps features the CNIT and, just visible bottom left, the Futuro in front of the building. It is one of several first day covers, stamps and other philately related items associated with PhilexFrance82 that included the Futuro. Other items related to this particular stamp can be found here, here, here, here and here.

São Tomé E Príncipe Stamps | Purchased 072117

PhilexFrance82 was a philately exhibition held at the CNIT (Centre Des Nouvelles Industries Et Technologies) in La Défense in Paris, France in 1982. It was one of a series of such events with others taking place in 1989 and 1999. At the time the Saint-Ouen Futuro was located outside the CNIT and a number of philately related items commemorating Philexfrance82 featured the Futuro in some way.

The República Democrática De São Tomé E Príncipe issued two stamps for PhilexFrance82 with a transportation theme. Neither stamp featured the Futuro but it was included, along with the CNIT and Eiffel Tower, in some non-stamp graphics included in sheets of the actual stamps.

This mint sheet initially appears to contain nine stamps; in fact it is eight, four each of two stamps. In the center is what appears to be a stamp but in fact is not and it is that image that includes the Futuro (though it is hard to spot).

This sheet is one of several items in this collection featuring the República Democrática De São Tomé E Príncipe stamps and the associated graphic; others can be found here, here and here.

São Tomé E Príncipe Stamps | Purchased 070117

In 1982 the República Democrática De São Tomé E Príncipe issued two stamps to mark PhilexFrance82, one of a series of philately exhibitions held in France in 1982, 1989 and 1999.

PhilexFrance82 was held at the CNIT (Centre Des Nouvelles Industries Et Technologies) in La Défense in Paris, France and several PhilexFrance82 philately related items in some way feature the Saint-Ouen Futuro during its time outside the CNIT.

This mint strip is one of several items in this collection featuring the República Democrática De São Tomé E Príncipe stamps (others can be found here, here and here). The strip features one of each stamp along with a graphic in the center that includes the Futuro (though it is small and difficult to see).

Futuro Stamp - December 1971 "Cover" | Purchased 041517

When we saw this item on an auction site recently we thought it was another First Day Cover of the Futuro stamp and we did not notice the date was 120471; given the date it is actually a "Non-First Day Cover" but nevertheless it is nice addition to the collection. The text on the "cover" appears to relate to a philatelic society as far as we can tell from Google Translate.

Other examples of the Futuro Stamp and Covers in this collection can be found here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here.

Futuro Stamp - Numerical Cancel | Purchased 111612

Wikipedia defines Numerical Cancels as "cancels whereby numbers were used to identify specific post offices." We are not stamp collectors and know nothing about stamp collecting and to be frank the explanation does not mean a whole lot to us. Nevertheless this is an example of a "numerical cancel" featuring the 1971 Futuro Stamp.

Other examples of the Futuro Stamp and Covers in our collection can be found here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here.

Futuro Stamp - Original Collection | Purchased 091612

In 1971 Finland issued a stamp to commemorate the plastics industry; the stamp featured the Futuro House (Scott # 0190-0511). The stamp was issued 102071.

The photo below shows our original collection of examples of the Futuro stamp (listed from top to bottom and left to right):
  • Two First Day Covers (there are other different examples; if you have any or know of any for sale please let us know)
  • Plate block of four stamps

Russian Mint Cover - 1985 | Purchased 090713

Update 020714

It turns out there are indeed two covers featuring the Dombai Futuro. This one is from 1985 and the other is from 1978. They each feature a different image of the Dombai Futuro. As unobservant as we are we had never noticed that the images were different.

Original Information 090713

We have seen photos and examples of this Russian Mint Cover featuring the Dombai Futuro in several places. It is always stated that it dates from 1978 (usually 122678). This example actually has the date 1985 printed on the back so either the cover was issued again in later years after being first issued in 1978 or there never was a 1978 issue and other reports are mistaken. If you have an example of this cover we would be interested to hear how it is dated on the back.

The image featured on the cover is an artist's rendering of the photograph on this 1981 postcard that, coincidentally, we added to this collection the same day as this cover.

PhilexFrance82 Folon Stamps Cover | Purchased 072717

In 1982 France issued two stamps designed by Belgian artist Jean-Michel Folon to commemorate PhilexFrance82 a philately exhibition held at the CNIT (Centre Des Nouvelles Industries Et Technologies) in La Défense in Paris, France in 1982.

The 1982 event was one of a series of such events with others taking place in 1989 and 1999. At the time the Saint-Ouen Futuro was located outside the CNIT and a number of philately related items commemorating Philexfrance82 featured the Futuro in some way.

This cover features the two Folon stamps with Philexfrance82 cancellations dated 061482. The envelope includes a photo of the CNIT and, though small, the Futuro is clearly visible in front of the CNIT. We are assuming that this was some kind of a "souvenir" cover available for people attending Philexfrance82. The same photo can also be seen on this cover.

1982 Republique De Djibouti Stamp | Purchased 070817

PhilexFrance82 was held at CNIT (Centre Des Nouvelles Industries Et Technologies) in La Défense in Paris, France. At the time the Saint-Ouen Futuro was located outside the CNIT.

1982 Republique De Djibouti Stamp | Purchased 070617

In 1982 the Republique De Djibouti issued two stamps to commemorate PhilexFrance82, one of a series of philately exhibitions held in 1982, 1989 and 1999.

PhilexFrance82 was held at CNIT (Centre Des Nouvelles Industries Et Technologies) in La Défense in Paris, France. At the time the Saint-Ouen Futuro was located outside the CNIT.

The collecting of stamps is not something we have ever engaged in but as we were looking at different examples of items related to PhilexFrance82 it became apparent that there are all sorts of "variations" on any given stamp.

We could have been satisfied with a single example of any given stamp or other item that included the Futuro in some way but the collector "bug" seemingly persuaded us to the view that this collection of "Things Futuro" should include different variations of what might be considered "the same item".

One of the two Republique De Djibouti stamps features the CNIT and, just visible bottom left, the Futuro in front of the building and this item is (we believe) a "die proof" of that stamp; a print of the stamp design directly from the engraved die onto oversized card stock.

The print is of very high quality. It is one of several first day covers, stamps and other philately related items associated with PhilexFrance82 that included the Futuro. Other items related to this particular stamp can be found here, here, here, here and here.

PhilexFrance82 was a philately exhibition held at the CNIT (Centre Des Nouvelles Industries Et Technologies) in La Défense in Paris, France in 1982.

At the time the Saint-Ouen Futuro was located outside the CNIT and a number of philately related items commemorating Philexfrance82 featured the Futuro in some way.

The República Democrática De São Tomé E Príncipe issued two stamps for PhilexFrance82 with a transportation theme. Neither stamp featured the Futuro but it was included, along with the CNIT and Eiffel Tower, in some non-stamp graphics included in sheets of the actual stamps.

Here we have a sheet of what appears to be nine stamps; in fact it is eight, four each of two stamps. In the center is what initially appears to be a stamp but in fact is not and that image does actually include the Futuro (though it is hard to spot). Though clearly never "mailed" the stamps do carry a cancellation dated 062182, the last day of PhilexFrance82.

This sheet is one of several items in this collection featuring the República Democrática De São Tomé E Príncipe stamps and the associated graphic; others can be found here, here and here.

PhilexFrance82, one of a series of philately exhibitions held in France in 1982, 1989 and 1999, was held at the CNIT (Centre Des Nouvelles Industries Et Technologies) in La Défense in Paris, France.

Several PhilexFrance82 philately related items in some way feature the Saint-Ouen Futuro which was located outside the CNIT at the time including this mint strip featuring two stamps issued by the República Democrática De São Tomé E Príncipe. The stamps themselves do not include the Futuro but the graphic in the center of the strip which carries an image of the CNIT does show the Futuro (very small and difficult to see) in front of the CNIT.

This item is one of several in this collection featuring the República Democrática De São Tomé E Príncipe stamps and the associated graphic; others can be found here, here and here.

Futuro Stamp - October 1971 "Cover" | Purchased 120917

When we recently noticed this item on an auction site we thought it was another version of a First Day Cover of the Futuro stamp and we did not notice the cancellation date was actually 103171 and not 102071, the first day of issue of the stamp, so it should perhaps be described as a "Non-First Day Cover".

The cover carries the logo "UF XXV" which was the logo for Upseerifilatelistit r.y. (translates as the "Officer philatelists registered association" - our thanks to Marko Home for the information and the translation) a stamp collectors club founded in 1946 for the officers of the Finnish army.

Futuro Stamp - First Day Cover | Purchased 050518

There are several examples of First Day Covers of the commemorative Futuro Stamp issued in Finland on 102071 in this collection already but when we saw this one for sale a little while ago the "collector bug" caused us to determine that while we had several examples already this FDC was just a little different in that it was a plain envelope with no graphics of any kind and so here it is!
