Matti Suuronen’s Futuro House

Matti Suuronen’s Futuro House

We, at Mimi Berlin, came to know about Matti Suuronen’s Futuro House via the Salone del Mobile 2017. On Instagram; we didn’t attend the Design Week this year because we missed our flight.  So this week we will be posting about venues, designs and other places we feel we really missed out on.

This flying saucer type of building is something we really wanted to see in real life. A yellow version stood in front of the Louis Vuitton Fondation at the Palazzo Bocconiin in Milan, where the newest designs for the Objets Nomades Collection were on display.

The Futuro House was designed in 1968 by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen. It was commissioned as a portable “holiday house” or ski chalet. Because it would be used in a mountainside setting, the structure needed to be easy to transport to the site, low maintenance and shed snow easily. The final design of the Futuro House met all those criteria. It’s just over 26 feet in diameter and came completely equipped with ctom furnishings that fit the interesting shape of this house.

Hiring the Futuro. Why think outside the box, when you can think inside a circle? Various forward looking companies and institutions have already taken the opportunity to use the  Futuro House as an inspirational and unique meeting or event space. “more info at futurohouse.co.uk

Eye-dentify with eyelashes

Eye-dentify with eyelashes

What kind of woman are you anyway; Eye-dentify with eyelashes. An advertisement from the sixties of the previous century, by Andrea. Andrea, the brand, we do not know. What we do know that eyelashes are equally important now, in 2017, as they were in the sixties.

We do love this image the women with the nude lipstick and black, big eyelashes, they are very intruiging! Just like the Kardashians; tacky but intruiging…..Just that! Have a nice day!
