Eames ply elephant, 1945

Eames Elephant stool in American Cherry by Charles & Ray Eames for Vitra.

Almost no other animal enjoys such popularity as the elephant. Admired for its majestic size and loved for its proverbial good-humour, it is part of our everyday experience as a child's cuddly toy, a storybook character and a majestic creature.

Charles and Ray Eames also succumbed to their charms and in 1945 designed a toy elephant made of plywood. While the Eames plywood elephant never made it into mass production. A prototype was exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1946 and continues to live on in the Eames archives.

After a limited edition in 2007, this is the first time Vitra has launched a serial production of the children's wooden stool in American Cherry plywood.

The Eames elephant is also available in a plastic version.

Herman Miller has the sole license for the Charles and Ray Eames collection in the U.S. and the Far East. Therefore the export of these products from the UK to the U.S. is not possible.
