my fab uten.silo wall storage attracts a lot of attention i promised to post some information for all my interested customers. 

first launched in 1969 under the name of  ‘wall all’  it was designed by dorothee becker, who was married to lighting designer ingo maurer. becker was a self taught designer & developed the uten.silo whilst working in maurer’s studio. it was designed at the time when plastic was becoming a popular material in the manufacture of household items, although production  was halted in 1974 due to the oil crisis. subsequently  becker has granted permission to the vitra design museum to re-issue the uten.silo. the various sized pockets, hooks & clips make it an adaptable addition to home & office & my studio!

 

suppose i should tell you where to buy one…   the conran shop, Salts Mill in Saltaire & one or two other discerning outlets.

& i recently spotted it on www.nest.co.uk !
