    Designed by Swiss architect Willy Guhl in 1952, made in Switzerland.

Created by the Swiss-architect/designer in the 1950s; this iconic modernist planter pot design features a low-slung free form shape inspired by an Elephant's ear while also being reminiscent of the Eames La Chaise and Noguchi's Freeform Sofa. This modern planter was later renamed after the Swiss town Biasca. These distinctive modernist Biasca planters will make an exceptional architectural statement in your contemporary garden or on the patio. This planter is made from fiberated cement that is lightweight, strong and durable in all climates so no worries about leaving this beauty outdoors. Comes with pre-drilled drainage hole.

    Willy Guhl's Biasca aka Elephant Ear planter was designed in 1951 by Swiss neo-functionalist designer Willy Guhl (1915-2004) in Switzerland.

    Each planter is a "one off" unique piece, made from eco-friendly recycled fiber cement (concrete). No two of these will every be exactly alike. Please note that due to this peculiar uniqueness, customer must be able to accept minor imperfections that are normal for unique hand made objects.

    Biasca planters are crafted from eco-friendly recycled fiber cement (a heat, rain and frost-resistant concrete) that is both lighter weight and fireproof compared to regular concrete planter pots. Fiber cement's main ingredients are: cement, powdered limestone, cellulose and synthetic fibers, water and air. Because fiber is combined with cement you get all the benefits associated with sleek concrete but in a lightweight design. Though delicate looking, this concrete table is plenty sturdy and durable. The concrete-like material withstands weather and is frost proof when used properly (no standing water). It resists heat, rain, and snow while still being light and fireproof.
