4683 container | Anna Castelli Ferrieri | Kartell, Italy | 1972

Castelli planter Anna Castelli Ferrieri
Kartell, Italy, 1972

Designed in 1972 by Anna Castelli Ferrieri, the 4683 container is a part of a larger selection of containers including models 4681, 4684, 4685, 4686, 4687, 5683, and 5684. It is 43 cm tall and 40 cm in diameter, so it is capable of holding a rather large plant.  With four castors, it is easy to move around, even with a large plant inside.  The planter was designed to be filled with rocks first to catch excess water.  I drilled a few holes in the bottom of the one I have to make sure the plant I put in it didn’t drown.  Kartell lists the planter as being made in black and white and i found one in yellow, which looks great.
