Colorful Eames® Elephant
Why We Chose This
<div>In 1946, MoMA staged <em>New Furniture Designed by Charles Eames,</em> a groundbreaking exhibition that included a prototype of a molded plywood elephant, which was initially made for Charles&rsquo; 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&rsquo;s collection. "</div>
