The design of Vitra Uten.Silo I is very much in the tradition of other organically shaped 1960s plastic designs by, for example, Verner Panton or Eero Arnios. Designed by Dorothee Becker this original and practical wall mounted storage solution features geometrically shaped bowls and is available in a range of colours. In 1970 the Uten.Silo I was joined by the Uten.Silo II - a smaller version for 87 x 67 cm only.

The Design

Inspired by the ideals of the Summer of 68 and the theories and philosophies of Maria Montessori, Dorothee Becker created a wooden toy for her children which required them to insert shapes into the correct holes.
