Aluminium Flower pot
Garden expert Ulf Nordfjell typically combines unexpected shapes to create dramatic effects. This smooth, basin-like planter can be placed atop a corresponding concrete pillar to double its height, or positioned on a textured surface to create a striking contrast. The planter is fitted with an inner container and an irrigation tank to keep the compost moist, and can easily be adapted to use as a fountain or water feature.MaterialThe planter is made from sand-cast 100% recycled aluminium powder-coated in a silvery finish. The inner container is made of reinforced fibreglass and fitted with foldable handles made of galvanised steel. The pillar is made in reinforced cast concrete, or alternatively, in zinc-electroplated steel powder-coated in Gris 900 Sablé. The base plate for both types of pillars is made in rust-resistant sheet steel. The planters’ top rim is made in hot-dip galvanised steel pipe. Measurements > PLANTER: Length: 125 cm. Width: 80 cm.
