The Elephant that Charles and Ray Eames initially developed out of plywood in 1945 is available in plastic – as a toy or decorative object in a variety of colours, and not just for children's rooms.‎

Material:
dyed-through polypropylene, matte finish.‎

In the early 1940s, Charles and Ray Eames spent several years developing and refining a technique for moulding plywood into three-dimensional shapes, creating a series of furniture items and sculptures in the process.‎ Among these initial designs, the two-part elephant proved to be the most technically challenging due to its tight compound curves, and the piece never went into serial production.‎ One prototype, which was given to Charles's 14-year-old daughter Lucia Eames, was loaned to the Museum of Modern Art in New York for a 1946 exhibition.‎ It is still in the possession of the Eames family today.‎
After a limited edition in 2007, Vitra has now added a plywood version of the legendary Eames Elephant to its standard portfolio.‎ The sculptural decorative figure with a high-quality face veneer in American cherry has been available since 2017.‎
Several years ago, the Eames Elephant was also launched in plastic, making it available to the target group for which it was originally intended: children.‎ And a smaller version – with an identical design but reduced in scale – likewise comes in plastic in a choice of colours.‎
Whether selected as an elegant wooden object for the living room, as a robust plastic toy for a child's bedroom or outdoor use, or as a small decorative animal figure – the friendly animal with its proudly prominent ears will bring delight to children and parents alike.‎
