Eternit, creative Swiss brand behind the whimsical Relax Man planter featured in our Container Porn post, produces their Palma planter of their patented version of fiber cement–a composite material made of sand, cement and cellulose fibers often used in the building industry for siding and available as well in sheet form for other uses, like planters and outdoor furniture. Fiber cement is a breathable, durable, and sustainable material made completely from natural elements.
Palma’s Austrian designer, Rainer Mutsch, uses Fibercement to form the Palma planters by hand in Eternit’s Swiss production plant.
Drawing inspiration from the trunks of palm trees, the planters faux layered rings circling from the bottom to the top of the container.
The minimalist planters, which would blend well in most any indoor our outdoor decor, are available in several colors and two heights.
