MuoviPlast - January 2012 | Added 080115
is a magazine published by the Finnish Plastics Association
. The January 2012 issue of the publication includes an article about Futuro #001
and its restoration prior to being installed at WeeGee Exhibition Center
The article also references the company Ekin Muovi
which was involved (we believe) in the restoration of Futuro #001
(Ekin Muovi was also involved in the 2001 project to restore the Futuro now located in Kauhava
and then transport and display it at the 7th International Istanbul Biennial
in the grounds of the Ottoman Mint at the Topkapi Palace
Photos accompanying the article include a number of shots of the Futuro during restoration that we imagine would have been taken at the Ekin Muovi shop prior to the unit being moved to WeeGee.

Sammler Journal - October 2017 | Added 020321
The October 2017 issue of the German publication The Sammler Journal included a lengthy (8 page) article on the Munich Futuro
. The article is accompanied by a number of nice photos
The text of the article is in German so we have been unable to read it and do not know if there is any new or particularly interesting information in the article. However we ought to be able to get it translated fairly easily as you can "load" a PDF file into Google Translate to get a translation. Unfortunately the PDF of the magazine is too large but once we have been able to break it into several smaller files we ought to be able to get it translated. If at that time we find anything new or of particular interest we will update this page accordingly.
