The (Eames) Elephants Are Coming- 10.05.07
It’s the 100th anniversary of the Eames’ birth, and their grandson Eames Demetrios has made a tribute to them. “This is a double celebration of the Charles Eames centennial (go to the Eames Office site to learn more). The Elephants were designed in 1945 but never went into production. This year, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Charlesâ€™ birth, the Vitra Design Museum in association with the Eames Office, has brought them out in a limited edition.”
