Eames Elephant - Grey Plywood (Limited Edition)
Charles and Ray Eames
- Product information
Charles and Ray Eames developed a toy elephant made of plywood in 1945; however, this piece never went into production. One prototype was shown at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMa) in New York in 1946 and still survives in the Eames family archives today. After a limited edition in 2007, Vitra launched serial production of the Eames Elephant in wood for the very first time in 2018.
In 2020, the Eames Elephant celebrated being 75 years old. To commemorate this anniversary, Vitra launched a special series in grey-stained wood – bringing the intricately produced collector's item even closer to its living counterparts.
The Eames Elephant (plywood, grey) available from September 2020 from nearly 600 Vitra retail partners. The special series is limited to 999 pieces, each of which have a special numbered label.
Anniversary Edition: Moulded plywood with face veneer in ash, stained grey (France).
Also available in American Cherry plywood or plastic version.
Plywood: 785mmL x 410mmD x 415mmH
