Corten building facades are just one example. There are many other uses for this material and some of them focus on little things like planters or decorations. Corten steel planters are an interesting example. They take advantage of the particularities of this material is a really practical way.
The Shard planters displayed here come in three different sizes, all featuring geometric forms reminiscent of volcanic shards. This resemblance also inspired the name of the collection. The planters are made from Corten steel or aluminum and they are available in a variety of finishes, including a natural rusted look or a powder-coated one.
The rusted box planters featured here are also made of Corten steel. This finish is intended to forma protective layer which prevents the steel from suffering further damage caused by weather and site conditions. The planters are manufactured by Five Twenty Two Industries and their design is a very simple and very versatile one.
The succulents on this terraces garden contrast nicely with the aged weathered steel planters and the different heights and shapes create a really nice dynamic. The result is a three-dimensional design that plays with textures, colors and finishes.
A similar contrast is also displayed here. The rusted planters and the green lawn and plants make each other stand out. At the same time, the planters coordinate with the large house doors.
