Charles and Ray Eames developed a toy elephant made of plywood in 1945; however, this piece never went into production. A scaled-down version, the Eames Elephant (small) made of robust plastic, can be used as a child's toy or as a decorative object, whose friendly face adds a charming note to any setting. The Eames Elephant also comes in a larger version, in plastic or elegantly moulded plywood.

Designer

Designed by Charles & Ray Eames, 1945

The Eameses are best known for their groundbreaking contributions to architecture, furniture design, industrial design and manufacturing, and the photographic arts.

Charles Eames was born in 1907 in St. Louis, Missouri. He attended school there and developed an interest in engineering and architecture. After attending Washington University in St. Louis on scholarship for two years and being thrown out for his advocacy of Frank Lloyd Wright, he began working in an architectural office. In 1929, he married his first wife, Catherine Woermann (they divorced in 1941), and a year later Charles’s only child, Lucia was born. In 1930, Charles started his own architectural office. He began extending his design ideas beyond architecture and received a fellowship to Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan, where he eventually became head of the design department.
