Willy Guhl for Eternit 'Diablo' Model 227 Hourglass Concrete Planter, circa 1968

About

Incredibly gorgeous and incredibly large model #227 'Diablo' concrete planter by Swiss architect Willy Guhl for Eternit, circa 1968, Switzerland. This sculptural hourglass shaped concrete planter is the largest size that was made, towering over other examples at 37.5" tall. Very on-trend for designer and architectural homes. The patina and age on this example is simply beautiful. For interior designers and collectors - you don't want an example that has been scrubbed clean on its patina, it takes years to develop back. This hourglass shaped pot is freshly imported from the UK and has such a nice European-climate-patina and coloring developed throughout. Such artistry and perfect for an interior designer home. We have a large collection of Willy Guhl for Eternit pots, planters, garden objects, jardinières, and patio furniture. We always have inventory in Diablo's, Tilted and Cone Planters, box and rectangular Guhl's and more. Original Guhls like this were made with asbestos, therefore we advise only using outside or in a well ventilated room. While other dealers don't usually disclose this - we would rather you be safe than sorry. Consider using in a Architectural, Postmodern, Mid-Century Modern, Scandanavian Modern or Danish modern garden or penthouse apartment balcony but could also look fantastic in a Contemporary or Zen / Minimalism setting. Also consider mixing it up in a Traditional, Transitional, Classical or Art Deco space with a splash of juxtaposition. Would also be an apt choice in a commercial project such as an outdoor hotel lobby lounge or members club, creative design studio or high-rise executive office balcony. Condition: Sturdy and structurally sound. Has beautiful patina throughout from decades of organic aging. Excellent example for a collector or designer. Measurements: Height 37.75" x diameter 21.5".
