|Lago di Lugano Classic Modernist Outdoor Garden Planter|
|The Lago di Lugano Planters from NOVA68 at the recent Monrovia Garden Show.|
Planters come in all shapes and sizes but chances are that you have never seen these beautiful modernist ones before. That is because after a lengthy out-of production period (40 years to be exact), design store NOVA68 is bringing back one of the most beautiful planters ever made; the Lago di Lugano circular outdoor planter pot from the 1950s. This fantastic modern planter was named after a long defunct lake side resort on the Italian side of the Lake Lugano (Italian: Lago di Lugano or Ceresio); a glacial lake which is situated on the border between south-east Switzerland and Italy. The lake, named after the city of Lugano, is situated between Lake Como and Lago Maggiore and was a major draw for Jet Setters in the 1950s and 1960s. If you are lucky, you may still spot one of these planters at mid-century lake front estates around the Lake Lugano. The large circular shape of the Lago di Lugano planter makes it perfectly suited for outdoor areas such as contemporary and mid-century modern houses and upscale hotels and resorts. This fantastic modern planter would look amazing at any pool side, garden terrace or even in large loft spaces. It is also a great planter pot for a corporate lobby. The Lago di Lugano planter is handmade and imported from Switzerland. The composition is fiber cement which is a mostly organic material and is 100% recyclable. One of our favorite planters!
