Vitra Eames Elephant Chair Buttercup
Eames Elephant Chair by Vitra - Charles & Ray Eames 1950.
Designer: Charles & Ray Eames 1945
This is an original genuine Vitra piece.
Since introducing the Eames Elephant, Vitra have been considering offering a version in black, but have always held back because black is not the ideal colour for children. Now, because the Eames Elephant is frequently also used by adults as a decorative object in the living room, Vitra have discharged this likeable, thickskinned
creature from its services being exclusively suitable for children. In black, the silhouette of the elephant is brought to the foreground, lending him a slightly more restrained but still playful impression.
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. However it never made it into mass production.
