Elephants from Eames





To celebrate the 100th birthday of Charles Eames, Vitra is introducing a beautiful new edition of the Eames Elephant, a legendary furniture sculpture that was designed in 1945 but never produced for general distribution and sale. The Eames elephant is now available for the first time in a very durable plastic version which is suitable for indoor- and outdoor play.

Charles and Ray Eames were fascinated by elephants. Many images of these gentle giants are found in Charles Eames' photographic documentations of Indian culture and the circus world. The Eames Elephant was designed as a toy for children, but also as a striking sculptural object that makes a statement in any environment with its vigorous curves and delightful character.
