Collectable miniature. Three-dimensionally molded plywood. Original design by Charles and Ray Eames, 1945.
The Eames Elephant is one of the most complex molded plywood designs because of its tight angles and compound curves. Because of this, the chair was never put into production and only two prototypes were made. This miniature is reproduced at a scale of 1:6 and packed in its own miniature wooden shipping crate with a descriptive brochure. Developed by the Vitra Design Museum in Germany, each chair is crafted in the materials of the original Eames Elephant.
