here in norcal, a few of the independent nurseries are importing zinc planters in a couple of interesting/minimal shapes (and a few overly ornate shapes as well). we picked up a half-dozen large planters at for about $50/each... see the bamboo in the triangular planter behind the maple in . we spied some similar ones at as well. so... you might think to check your indie nurseries.

Here's a couple of possibilities:

Not sure how "modern" they might be, but definitely colorful!

I was thinking of making my own saucer-shaped planters, like Morris Lapidus used to use in his designs.

It's just concrete and 1/4" wire fabric. Perhaps someday when I figure out where I will be living for sure.
Make modern your own, don't trust others to- it's our future.
