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. At the time of the latest update to this page the collection comprises 444 physical items plus 155 "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.

CA Modern - Winter 2007 | Purchased 092912

CA Modern's Winter 2007 issue includes an excellent and detailed article about the Idyllwild Futuro. It includes some great photographs, a lot of fascinating information about the process of transporting the unit by road to its current location and much more. It also includes some interesting information on the Pensacola Beach Futuro. Probably the best and most informative magazine article we have read to date.

We purchased a copy from the Publishers website. Actually we purchased two - the Eichler Network store had a $12 minimum purchase and the magazine was $10 so it would not let us purchase a single copy. If anyone is interested in purchasing our extra copy or trading it for something we do not have please let us know.

Original Information 101712

Casa Brutus #13 April 2001 CoverTranslateIssue #13 (April 2001) of the Japanese publication Casa Brutus carried a Futuro article on pages 130 through 133.

Pages 130-131 display a double page color photo taken at an event we like to call "The Sandbox"; a 1969 event wherein a series of Futuro models were staged in a "sandbox" type environment and photographed. On pages 132-133 we see several photos, some drawings and some images of Futuro models. The photos include one of the Dombai Futuro and a shot of the three Futuros that were located together in Belgium in the early 1970's.

Original Information 101712

TranslateOn page 127 of the October 2001 issue of the Japanese publication Casa Brutus we see a Futuro for sale. The advertised price is five million yen; at today's exchange rates that is about $62650 or about $81,650 at todays prices (based on this online inflation calculator). There is a photo of the exterior and three interior shots. The Futuro looks to be in either excellent original condition or it has been very well restored.

Original Information 101712

TranslateIn the December 2001 issue of the Japanese publication Casa Brutus we find an eight page photo feature. It is titled in English "2001: A Futuro Odyssey"; presumably a play on Stanley Kubbrick's classic 1968 movie "2001; A Space Odyssey". There is a little text on one of the pages but of course we have no idea what it says.

In addition on page 86 there is a photo of a Futuro that appears to be in excellent condition accompanied by a very short write up.

Christie's Magazine - December 2007 | Purchased 120712

Christie's Magazine December 2007 CoverFew auction houses have the prestige of Christie's and in 2007 a Futuro House was sold at auction by Christie's. The sale, titled "20th Century Art And Design", was held at Christie's in Paris on 112707.

The Futuro House was expected to sell for somewhere in the range 150,000 to 180,000 Euros; it actually came in a little under that at a reported 140,000 Euros. Christie's website allows you to access the results of past auctions but searching this sale for the Futuro lot comes up empty; not sure why that would be. The catalog for the auction is also included in this collection; it can be found here.

The December 2007 issue of Christie's Magazine includes a two page article on the Futuro House; though dated December it was clearly published earlier than that since the article talks about the "upcoming" November 27th auction. Interestingly it features a photograph of the Futuro displayed at MUDAM earlier that year and this text:

"The rare Futuro house to be offered in the upcoming 27 November sale in Paris was the highlight of the exhibition "Tomorrow Now - When Design Meets Science Fiction" at the brand-new Luxembourg MUDAM museum for modern art this summer."

This text is a little ambiguous; it could be interpreted as meaning that "a" Futuro was displayed at MUDAM or "the" Futuro that is offered for sale was displayed at MUDAM. Until recently we had always thought that the Futuro at MUDAM was the Saint-Ouen Futuro but recent information suggests it is more likely to have been the Belgian Futuro and we believe the article is simply using the MUDAM exhibition as an example of a Futuro for the article.

The Futuro was purchased by Dakis Joannou and moved to his property in Limni, Corfu.

Curve -#40/2012 | Purchased 020713

Curve -#40/2012Issue 40 of the Australian magazine Curve: The Industrial Design Magazine published in 2012 included a two page article on the WeeGee Futuro.

The article text is general and reveals nothing new about the Futuro but the photos that accompany the article include a couple of nice shots.

There is also a review of the definitive Futuro book "Futuro: Tomorrow's House from Yesterday" edited By Marko Home & Mika Taanila on page 63.

Das Haus - October 1971 | Purchased 021414

TranslateGerman publication Das Haus featured the 1971 IKA or "Internationale Kunststoffhaus Ausstellung der Welt" on pages 21-23 of its October 1971 issue.

The IKA showcased a number of plastic and potentially portable housing units; included among them was the Futuro House. The article is in German so are unable to read the text. It includes a single photograph of the Futuro House.

Design - #241/January 1969 | Purchased 030419

Design - Issue 241 January 1969 - CoverThe exhibition "Plastics As Plastics" ran from 112368 through 011269 at the Museum of Contemporary Crafts (now the Museum of Arts and Design) in New York City (a copy of the catalog for the exhibition can be found in this collection here).

Issue #241 (January 1969) of the publication Design featured a multi page article on the exhibition that included a double page spread on the Futuro House (we are unclear as to whether a Futuro was actually displayed at this exhibition though based on the information we do have we tend to think not). The article includes several photos some of which are of Futuro #000 in Turenki and one of which appears likely to be a photo taken during manufacture.

The article describes the Futuro House in general terms and is fairly typical in that sense but it does make one assertion we have not come across before in that it reports that the Futuro came in two models "for after-ski and after-swim"; frankly we are not entirely sure what that could be referrring to and while we have seen many suggested uses for Futuro in the marketing materials from the time we have not previously seen this specific idea regarding distinct models anywhere.

Well respected Italian architecture and design magazine Domus was founded in 1928 and has been going strong ever since. Page 31 of the April 1969 issue of Domus features an article on the Futuro House.

The article, in Italian and English, offers some general commentary on the Futuro and is accompanied by a couple of exterior shots of Futuro #000 on the property of Jaakko Hiidenkari in Turenki, Finland, an interior shot and a small plan and elevation drawing.

In an article in the February 2009 issue of Cabin Life magazine Robin Washington, a local Wisconsin journalist, recounts a little Futuro history, a little history of his own fascination with the Futuro and also tells us a little about Drew Poggeman's "Pod Up North", a Futuro available for holiday rentals on Lake Sumach, Wisconsin.

We found our copy of this magazine on the website Kalmbach Bookstore. We just checked (at the time of writing) and they did not have it listed anymore but as with most magazines, at least the ones that are not too old, a search online will likely turn up a copy if it interests you.

Original Information 101712

TranslateIn the Summer 1999 issue of the Japanese publication Casa Brutus on pages 12-13 we see a photo of a Futuro being loaded onto the Finnpartner for transport to London for the 1968 Finnfocus Export Fair (or perhaps being removed from the ferry on its return to Finland after the event); this photo is also found in the book Home Delivery: Fabricating The Modern Dwelling.

There are some additional photos on page 31 including a couple from an event we like to call "The Sandbox"; a 1969 event wherein a series of Futuro models were staged in a "sandbox" type environment and photographed.

Casa Brutus #16 July 2001 CoverTranslateA large photo of a Futuro in a heavily wooded landscape covers pages 116-117 of Issue #16 (July 2001) of the Japanese publication Casa Brutus. As best you can tell from the photo it is a shell and not furnished, some of the windows are also missing.

On the following two pages we see several interior shots, likely not the Futuro featured on the previous pages along with a small photo of a Futuro on some sort of work site, perhaps in process of either being placed or removed.

There is also a small photo of what looks like it may be from the Shinto Ceremony that took place at the time of the construction of Japan's first Futuro in Karuizawa. Footage of this ceremony is one of the extras on the DVD of the Mika Taanila film "Futuro: A New Stance for Tomorrow" that accompanies the book "Futuro: Tomorrow's House from Yesterday" edited by Marko Home and Mika Taanila.

Original Information 101712

TranslateIn this issue (#20/November 2001) of the Japanese publication Casa Brutus we again see a Futuro for sale for five million yen; not being able to read the text it is hard to know for sure but it seems highly likely this is the same sale listing as appeared in the previous issue of Casa Brutus (#19).

Interestingly the photo that accompanies it appears to be of the Futuro featured in Casa Brutus #16 rather than the photo that accompanied the "for sale" article in issue #19. It may well be that they are one and the same and that it was moved and made ready for sale between the two articles. Perhaps it will become more clear if and when we get the text translated.

Craft Horizons - Vol 29 #1 /Jan 1969 | Purchased 042114

In 1941 the American Craft Council started to publish a newsletter for its members. The newsletter evolved into the magazine Craft Horizons (first published May 1942 and then renamed American Craft in 1979; it continues to be published to this day).

Volume 29 Issue 1 of Craft Horizons published January/February 1969 contains a four page article entitled "The Plastics of Architecture." There is no mention of the Futuro House in the text of the article but it is accompanied by a photograph of a Futuro House. The photo is (we think) of Futuro #001 now located at the WeeGee Exhibition Center in Espoo, Finland but at the time located in Hirvensalmi, Finland.

The September 2011 issue of Cranes Today Magazine includes an article on the 2010 transport of the Vlotho Futuro to its current location in Witten.

The Futuro was moved by the German Firm August Alborn who received an award from ESTA (the European Association of Abnormal Road Transport and Mobile Cranes) for the move. After considering and subsequently discounting disassembly for road transport and air transport the company settled on moving the Futuro by road in a fully assembled state.

D2 - 120211 | Purchased 011313

TranslateOslo based Norwegian daily newspaper Dagens Næringsliv publishes D2, a free lifestyle magazine, each week with its Friday edition. The 120211 issue of D2 includes an article on the Norwegian Futuro House (pages 36-40).

The article, titled "Tilbake Til Fremtiden" (which Google translates to "Back To The Future"), was written by Elisabeth Sperre Alnes (Elizabeth's blog post on the article can be found here). Of course we cannot read the article which is now another on the list of things we need to get translated (if you happen to be able to translate Norwegian and would like to help out please let us know; we can provide hi-res images of the article for the purpose).

Despite our inability to read the article it does contain some great photos (taken by the author) and the photos clearly illustrate the fact that this Futuro is in very good condition.

We must say a huge thank you to Dagens Næringsliv; not only were they happy to send us a copy of the magazine at no charge they would not even let us pay for the shipping from Norway to the US. In this day and age where everything seems to be about money it was a surprise, and a very refreshing surprise at that, to come across a business which would do something like that; thank you again Dagens Næringsliv.

TranslatePages 5-58 of 111874 issue (#47/1974) of German magazine Der Spiegel carry an article that includes a photo of the Futuro at the 1971 Internationale Kunststoffhaus Ausstellung der Welt.

The magazine is from 1974, three years after the exhibition, and the Futuro appears in a section titled "Bäu-Affaren" which Google Translate tells us is "Construction Affairs." It appears to be an article about either a company (or an individual) involved in the construction industry, Schmöle, that has fallen on hard times. We cannot read the article but we are assuming that Schmöle had some involvement with the IKA.

Design From Scandinavia - #3/1970 | Purchased 042913

Design From Scandinavia 3 1970 CoverThe annual magazine Design from Denmark was launched by publisher Kirsten Bjerregaard in 1967. The following year the publication was renamed Design from Scandinavia.

Issue 3 of the publication included a short, very general, article on the Futuro House with text in three languages including English and several photographs including one very oft published photo of the Hirvensalmi Futuro (now at the WeeGee Exhibition Center).

We believe this issue was published in 1970 but we are not sure; if you search on Amazon or for that matter anywhere else for issues of Design From Scandinavia the quoted publication dates for the various issues often differ. The physical magazine itself, at least in the case of Issue 3, does not display the publication date anywhere.

Domus - #861/Jul-Aug 2003 | Purchased 052414

Well respected Italian architecture and design magazine Domus was founded in 1928 and has been going strong ever since. In the "Review" section (pages 2-3) of the July/August 2003 issue (#861) there is an article about the Futuro House which is part history and part review of the Home & Taanila book Futuro: Tomorrow's House from Yesterday. The article is presented in Italian and English and is accompanied by a photo of the Dombai Futuro.

Page 1 of the "Review" section includes a very small photo of a Futuro at a location we do not immediately recognize; we think it might be Futuro #000 at the 2000-2001 "Vision & Reality - Conceptions Of The 20th Century" exhibition at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark from an angle we have not seen before but we are not sure. Check it out here; perhaps you can identify it! If so please let us know.

Dwell - December 2004 | Purchased 121413

Dwell Magazine - December 2004 - CoverAs somewhat obsessive (and yes we do admit to that!) collectors of all "things Futuro" we are, like most collector's, looking for the most complete collection we can accumulate given the availability of items to collect and our own resources.

However in this case we think we might have managed to overstep the bounds of even our own "obsessiveness" (Is that even a word? Spell check suggests not but we think it appropriate anyway). We read somewhere, don't recall where, that the December 2004 issue of Dwell mentioned the Futuro House and, as always, we rushed to the trusty web to find a copy.

We found a copy quickly but we did not (lesson learned) confirm exactly what constituted a "mention" before proceeding to hand out our hard earned cash.

In this case even we would probably have concluded that the "mention" was insignificant enough that even we did not need this magazine in our collection but, since we did not check, and instead purchased a copy here it is.

The "mention" is exactly that and no more than that. In an editorial entitled "The Future Is Now" on page 33 of the magazine the Futuro House is one of the houses included in a list of "futuristic" houses from the 20th century that the writer suggests do not illustrate how architecture will actually evolve (specifically we believe the suggestion is that "round" will not be the shape we see other than in "one offs" and "experiments").

Thankfully the magazine was not very expensive.

AIA DFW Columns Magazine Fall 2017 CoverAIA Dallas is the sixth largest chapter of the American Institute Of Architects; the chapter publishes its Columns magazine four times a year.

The Fall 2017 issue of the publication included an article on the Royse City Futuro. The article occupied two pages and carried a single photo of the Futuro. The article was very general in nature and did not provide any new information either about Futuro in general or Royse City in particular. The article can be found online here.
