A Swiss family-owned furniture and accessories company by trade, Vitra makes pieces by many internationally renowned designers. The company was heavily influenced by the designs of Charles and Ray Eames and today they remain the sole authorised manufacturer of Eames products for Europe.

Charles and Ray Eames are considered by many to be among the most important figures of 20th century design. Their design work spans the fields of furniture design, photography and exhibition design. The Eames elephant, one of their most recognisable and iconic designs, began as a prototype in 1945. However it never made it into mass production, until recently. After the launch of a limited edition run in 2007, Vitra added a plywood version of the legendary Eames Elephant to its portfolio. The success of its timeless design continues to be celebrated and since then a plastic version was launched making it available for those it was originally intended for; children. A reduced scale smaller version is now also available in plastic too.

Whether you choose yours to be an elegant object for the living room, or as a robust plastic toy for your child’s outside playtime, or even as a small decorative animal figure saluting classic design- the friendly elephant with its proudly prominent ears will bring delight to children and parents alike.
