Die Neue Sammlung - The Design Museum
The event is handicapped accessible
Die Neue Sammlung presents the icon of the space age with a presentation in an outdoor space at Pinakothek der Moderne of the FUTURO, designed by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen in 1965-7 and originally intended as a ski lodge.
It epitomizes the future visions of the 1960s, in which visionary designs focused on new materials for mobile living environments.
With a diameter of 8 meters and an overall height of just under 6 meters the building offers ca. 25m² of living space.
FUTURO was acquired in 2016 for the museum and it is on show for the first time after comprehensive restoration work.
