These planters were designed around the production method of metal spinning. They are hand-made from sheet aluminum at the Greenpoint Design Center which has long housed Irca, the metal-spinning business run by a Columbiano named Juan Francisco Urseche.
The tooling was cut from six two-inch layers using a CNC router and two types of high-density foam. They are lightweight and functional, nest neatly, and bring a new aesthetic touch to a garden, deck, or stoop.
