6 Authentic Willy Guhl Spindel Planters

About

This iconic hourglass form was designed by Anton Bee and Willy Guhl in 1951 and produced by Eternit, a Swiss company. We were fortunate to acquire 6 authentic planters with production run numbers stamped inside indicating that they were made in 1956 and 1972. Intrinsically sculptural, they would be brilliant on a terrace filled with moss and black basalt rocks, topped with glass rounds and flanking a Harry Bertoia chair. Alternatively, pot them up with wavy grasses and drippy sedums to flank the corners of your Infiniti pool. For the very bold, mount the six planters on a 2" thick Lucite slab, top with glass, and marvel at your incredible outside dining table. Priced and sold by the pair.
