Uten.Silo I: Large
Designed by Dorothee Becker, produced by Vitra
Featuring containers in numerous shapes and sizes, metal hooks, and clips, Dorothee Becker's Uten.Silo (1969/1970) is perfect for organizing offices, kitchens, workshops, bathrooms and children's rooms. The German designer set out to create a practical and versatile storage solution – inspired by a multi-pocketed fabric storage system from her father's workshop – that was easy to mass produce in durable plastic. With financial backing from her husband, designer Ingo Mauer, Becker presented the Uten.Silo prototype at the Frankfurt Fair in 1969, and her design was a huge success. Unfortunately because of the oil embargo in the mid-70s, plastics became too costly to produce, and Uten.Silo fell out of production. That is until 2002, when the Vitra Design Museum reissued both the original 1969 version of Uten.Silo and a smaller one dating from 1970. Made in Germany.
