Miniature Chair Eames® Elephant
Description
This chair is one of many collectible miniatures, painstakingly made to replicate important chairs in the development of twentieth-century furniture design, many of which are represented in MoMA's collection. The Eames Elephant was designed by Charles and Ray Eames, whose work is featured in the Museum's collection and has been displayed in numerous exhibitions. In terms of fabrication, the Elephant is one of the most complex from the Eames' early 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. The 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.
