About

Cone-shaped planter attributed to Willy Guhl for Eternit. In 1951, the Swiss company Eternit, which originally focused on fiber-reinforced concrete roofing and cladding, commissioned Guhl—along with his students at the School of Applied Arts—to create these concrete planters. Upon request, a video clip of this piece may be provided. In fair vintage condition commensurate with age and usage. Please note that this gallery has several of these planters in various sizes if you would like to purchase more than one. About the Artist: Willy Guhl (1915 - 2004) was one of the very first industrial designers in Switzerland, an innovative, pioneering Swiss furniture designer. Best remembered for his weather-resistant cement designs produced by the Swiss company Eternit, he made his mark through unconventional experimentation with new materials, concise and timeless designs and a huge technical understanding. He was born in 1915 in Stein am Rhein, Switzerland, and attended the University of Industrial Arts before becoming a part of the neo-functional design scene in Europe during the mid-20th century. He created products that were elegant yet extremely strong and stable. His works were characterised by their simplicity, usefulness and self-evident function. He died on 4 October 2004 in Hemishofen, Switzerland. Dimensions: Height 26 cm (10.2") Diameter 60 cm (23.6).
