This Vitra Eames Plywood Elephant
in American Cherry has been released as a re-edition of the original Charles & Ray Eames Plywood Elephant
1945 design - which never actually went into production. One prototype was shown at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1946 and still survives in the Eames family archive. After a limited edition plywood version in 2007, Vitra has now launched serial production of the Eames Elephant in plywood with this American Cherry wood finish for the very first time. A great opportunity to buy a piece of design history.
