If only all design "failures" were so successful. The inspiration for the Eames unique Elephant chair (1956) launched when an inventor approached Vitra with a planned "self-skinned" injection plastic molding technique that would be inexpensive to produce and unerringly durable. The Elepahnt chair that Charles and Ray were designing,” explains Eames Demetrios, “is the chair that's made for tomorrow.”
