According to this Rolling Stone article, Aubrey Powell came up with the idea, and it was based on the monolith in the 2001 movie (the section on Presence is about two thirds of the way down):


Yes! I recall this now. I have a great radio interview from the week of June 7, 1976 called Earth News. It features Plant and Bonham (separately) and each discusses the album in-depth. The host speculates as to what The Object may symbolize (society breaking down among other suggestions).
