Vitra Eames Elephant, 1945

Product Description

The elephant that Charles and Ray Eames initially developed out of plywood in 1945 is now available in plastic - as a toy or decorative object in a variety of colours, and not just for children's rooms.
In 1945, Charles and Ray Eames designed the legendary Plywood Elephant. Only two prototypes were made from this production-ready plan, which were immediately shown in an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York after production. Today only one model is known to still be in existence, and is in the possession of the Eames family.
Charles and Ray Eames were fascinated by elephants: Many images of these gentle giants were found in Charles' photographic documentation of Indian culture and the circus world. The Plywood Elephant was intended to be a toy for children, which its merry curves and powerful expression show.
To celebrate Charles Eames 100th birthday in 2007, Vitra launched a limited release of the Plywood Elephant.
Like the plastic seat shells on today’s Eames Plastic Chairs, the Eames Elephant is made from polypropylene .It is available in five colors: red, ice grey, white, dark lime and light pink. Whether as a toy (even outside) or as an object in your children’s room - the friendly-looking animal with distinctive, over-sized ears may make the hearts of children and parents beat a little bit faster. The Eames Elephant has the GS and CE certificates standard for toy equipment.


Note: special additives retard the fading of colours due to UV radiation. However, if the chair is exposed to sunlight for prolonged periods, the colour may change over time. We recommend limited exposure to sunlight.


Approximate size: 31" X 16.5"
