Why We Chose This
In 1946, MoMA staged New Furniture Designed by Charles Eames, a groundbreaking exhibition that included a prototype of a molded plywood elephant, which was initially made for Charles’ 14-year-old daughter, Lucia. The piece was another way of presenting the new method of three-dimensional molding of plywood, a process pioneered by Ray and Charles Eames. These smaller, plastic versions of the original elephant design are made by Vitra. Both the manufacturer and the designers are represented in MoMA’s collection.
