Eames Plywood Elephant - Eames Special edition
Limited edition Eames Elephant, or 'special edition' is part of the Eames Special Collection. In the early 1940s, Charles and Ray Eames spent several years developing and refining a technique for moulding plywood into three-dimensional shapes, creating a series of furniture items and sculptures in the process. Among these initial designs, the two-part elephant proved to be the most technically challenging due to its tight compound curves, and the piece never went into serial production. One prototype, which was given to Charles's 14-year-old daughter Lucia Eames, was loaned to the Museum of Modern Art in New York for a 1946 exhibition. It is still in the possession of the Eames family today.
The elephant that Charles and Ray Eames initially developed out of plywood is also available in plastic – as a toy or decorative object in a variety of colours, and not just for children's rooms.
