Willy Guhl for Eternit 'Diablo' Model 554 Hourglass Concrete Planter, Signed

About

Incredibly gorgeous 24" tall model #554 'Diablo' concrete planter by Swiss architect Willy Guhl for Eternit, circa 1968, Switzerland. This sculptural hourglass shaped concrete planter has a white exterior finish and is 100% authentic, stamped with the 554 model number along with the Eternit embossing and red Eternit label. This hourglass shaped pot is freshly imported from the UK and has such a nice European-climate-patina and aging. Such artistry and perfect for an interior designer home. 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 an Architectural, Postmodern, Mid-Century Modern, Scandinavian 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 24" x diameter 14.5".
