Berzelii planter

Ulf Nordfjell

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.
