Vitra Uten Silo

Design Dorothee Maurer-Becker, 1969
ABS plastic
Made in Germany by Vitra

Utensilo is one of the best-known plastic designs of the late 1960s. Today, this colorful wall tidy is a veritable design icon and a true-to-the-original version of the product has now been reissued by Vitra Design Museum. At the end of the 1960s plastic was on its way to becoming one of the dominant design materials. In Italy, designers such as Joe Colombo and Vico Magistretti designed bright and cheerful furniture, luminaires and consumer goods for innovative manufacturers such as Artemide and Kartell. With the Bofinger Chair and the Panton Chair, the first seats made entirely of plastic appeared. At the same time in Munich Ingo Maurer, who had already attracted attention with his "Bulb" luminaire, launched a plastic wall tidy which created quite a stir ñ uten.silo.
