This print features a Studebaker Avanti and a Futuro House. The Iconic Cars and Architecture Illustration Series combine some the quintessential design achievements of the twentieth century.
The original Avanti manufactured and marketed by Studebaker Corporation between June 1962 and December 1963. It was designed by visionary Raymond Loewy and Associates. The Avanti boasted many safety and performance features in addition to it’s radical fiberglass body. A 1963 model Avanti is pictured here in front of a Futuro House, another futuristic fiberglass post-war design.
The Futuro, is a round, prefabricated house designed by Matti Suuronen. Fewer than 100 were built during the late 1960s and early 1970s. It was designed by Suuronen as a ski cabin that would be “quick to heat and easy to construct in rough terrain.” The distinctive flying saucer-like shape and airplane hatch entrance would make a very distinctive weekend home.
