Who can resist the Eames Plywood Elephant? The Eames® 31" (Full Size) Plywood Elephant (originally on sale in a limited edition: now in series) was designed by Charles & Ray Eames and is made by Vitra. Designed by the Eameses in 1945, "EAMES ELEPHANT" is made with molded plywood with face veneer in American Cherry Wood. At first difficult to manufacture, Vitra has now been able to re-create this better-known Eames design according to the exact specifications of the designers. Just like its larger counterpart (the African elephant); each is characterized by a kind and spiritual demeanor. Each Vitra-created Elephant is unique, artistic and elegant and will feel right at home in a living- or bedroom. Price is for one (1) piece. This is an original Vitra design with label. Packaged in Vitra cardboard box.
