Vitra Miniatures Plywood Elephant

Product Description

The Plywood Elephant holds a prominent place among the plywood pieces designed by the Eameses. In the early 1940s Charles and Ray Eames successfully developed an innovative method for moulding plywood into three-dimensional shapes, which they used to produce a wide range of furniture and sculptural objects. Among the early plywood designs, the Elephant is one of the most difficult to produce. Tight angles and compound curves require a sophisticated mastery of plywood technology.
Designed at the same time as their children's furniture, the Plywood Elephant can also be seen as a playful counterpart to the leg splints developed by the Eameses for military applications which were the very first mass-produced objects made of three-dimensionally moulded plywood.

The original of the Plywood Elephant was designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1945 and it is produced as 1:1 model by the Vitra International AG, Basel/Switzerland since 2007.

The here offered miniature by Vitra (scale 1:6) consists of three-dimensional formed plywood, a covering veneer in maple and a nickel-plated connection screw.

Material: Three-dimensionally moulded plywood, natural maple, nickle plated screw
Approximate size: 5"
