Eames Small Elephant

  • $ 145.00

Charles and Ray Eames developed a toy elephant made of plywood in 1945; The Eames elephant, after a limited edition plywood version in 2007, was first produced in a plastic version for those it was originally intended for children. Now, a scaled-down version, the Eames Elephant (small) made of robust plastic, can be used as a child's toy or as a decorative object, whose friendly face adds a charming note to any setting.

Charles and Ray Eames were fascinated by elephants. Many images of these gentle giants are found in Charles' photographic documentation of Indian culture and the circus world. The Eames Elephant was designed as a toy for children, but also as a striking sculptural object that makes a statement in any environment with its vigorous curves and delightful character. There is a playful charm in the way that the Eames used juvenile motifs to create a vibrant, cheerful idiom that appeals to adults as well as children.
