Eames Elephant

Eames Elephant

Following the release of the limited edition series ‘Eames Elephant’ to celebrate Charles Eames’ 100th birthday, Vitra are now producing a polypropylene version aimed at the group for which it was originally intended by Charles and Ray Eames; children. Designed in 1945 as part of their experiments with three-dimensional plywood, the complex fabrication methods required meant that only two prototypes were made. The limited edition run was made available in natural wood or red-stained maple version. The new version which should be available in January will come in five colours: red, white, lime, ice grey and bright pink.
