Gear Thursday: Eames Elephant
The Eames Elephant is super new, it was first produced by Vitra in March 2009, and super old, it was designed by Charles & Ray Eames in 1945.
I'm a huge fan Eames's design, so simple, so beautiful, so classic and so comfy. Their molded plywood chair, sometimes called chip chair, is my fave. You wouldn't think it but it's super comfy to sit in.
I wouldn't really do them justice in this post so check their wikipedia page if you're not familiar.
Any way in 1945 Ray & Charles Eames created 2 plywood elephants of molded wood. They were never mass produced. This year Vitra recreated the elephant in plastic and in 5 matte finishes.
It can be a chair, a toy or just a friend to your little one. Read more at the Vitra site, they have more great images, or head to Design Public to pick one up.
And to my family, I really want this so just put a green one in your cart, pay for it and don't look at the price. Thanks.
