Designed by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen in 1964, the Futuro was designed for mass production as a kit of prefabricated parts that could be assembled, taken apart and reassembled anywhere. Nearly 100 Futuros were manufactured in the late 60s and 70s and are scattered all over the world. The prototype, which looks like a flying saucer in a 60s comic book, is now on display at the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam in the exhibition Futuro: Constructing Utopia. Also in the exhibition are objects by other designers who shared Suuronen's desire to create the perfect form.
