For this reason, Vitra decided to produce a new version for children: the Eames Elephant made of plastic. The change of material still complied with the designer’s most important motto: ”The most of the best to the greatest number of people for the least.” Charles and Ray Eames used plastic to produce their seats in 1950, being the first designers to use it in order to reach affordable high-quality. Just like the modern plastic shells, the Eames Elephant is also made of polypropylene.
It is available in five different colours: red, ice-grey, white, dark lime and light pink. Whether it is used as a toy (also outdoors) or as a decorative item in children’s room – this friendly-looking animal with its distinctive, over-sized ears is bound to bring joy to many children and parents. The Eames Elephant is approved according to the GS and CE safety standards.
