Willy Guhl for Eternit Rectangle Concrete Outdoor Planter, 1970s, Signed

$1,100per item

About

This designer on-trend architectural 23.75" long rectangular concrete planter is by Swiss architect Willy Guhl for Eternit, crafted in the 1970s Switzerland and signed and dated underneath. This special low-profile rectangle-shaped concrete planter has a patinated natural exterior finish and organic aging over decades of UK climate. Excellent planter size for a variety of various uses such as succulents, plants, weeping grass with the planter on a stand, balcony privacy hedge, or any other outdoor decorative use. Scalloped ends on the base allow for ease of relocation. Consider using this Willy Guhl Concrete Planter Pot in a Architectural, Postmodern, Mid-Century Modern, Scandanavian Modern or Danish Modern garden, yard 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 antiquing and patina throughout from decades of organic aging which can include minor chipping, stains or other blemishes however this lightly distressed look is common, expected and desirable for these early production originals. Some of, but not all, examples exhibit light stable cracks. Since Eternit used a fibrous concrete material the cracks are stable and the planters are usable, to further provide stability we have added a bonding material to strengthen those areas on the couple examples that have light cracks. Measurements:: H 6" x W 23.75" x D 6".
