Eames Elephant, developed in 1945, is a versatile decoration object because it can be used as a decoration or toy for children.

In 1945, Charles and Ray Eames developed a plywood silhouette of an elephant. Currently, this object is made of plastic so that its target audience - children - can use it as a toy.

In the early 1940s, Charles and Ray Eames spent several years developing a technique for molding plywood into three-dimensional shapes, creating a series of pieces of furniture and sculpture.

Among these early designs, the two-part elephant proved to be the most technically challenging due to its tight curves, and the piece never went into series production. A prototype, given to Charles' daughter, 14-year-old Lucia Eames, was lent to the Museum of Modern Art in New York for an exhibition in 1946.

After a limited edition in 2007, Vitra has added a new version of the legendary Eames Elephant to its portfolio. The sculptural figurehead with a high-quality varnish has been available since 2017.
