martin mostböck references ancient columns in 'kolonna' planter collection for eternit

vienna-based architect and designer martin mostböck has designed kolonna, a new planter collection for austrian company eternit. built out of fiber cement, the flower pots carry forms that reference the columns of ancient temple complexes on the one hand, while on the other, they create a strong visual connection to the company’s classic roof corrugated sheets.

100% recyclable, martin mostböck‘s kolonna planters for eternit come in nature grey or anthracite, while custom color options are also available. archaic yet classic at the same time, the flower pot collection is designed with modern aesthetics and high recognition value, to compliment any garden or interior. the planters come in three different sizes, two with a 60 cm diameter and 50 or 60 cm height respectively, and a third with an 80 cm diameter and 70 cm height.
