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.

41w x 78.5d x 41.5cmh
