The (Eames) Elephants Are Coming- 10.05.07

eamesele.jpgIt’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 Charles’ birth, the Vitra Design Museum in association with the Eames Office, has brought them out in a limited edition.”

To watch the film.

To watch the film and making of with introduction by Eames Demetrios, which is on Eames Demetrios’ DASFilmFest.com (Fortnightly movies on Design, Architecture, and Sustainability plus a blog and a bit more…)

And some of my favorite screenshots are below! And i love that it is shot all over LA ~ lots of LA icons from randy’s donuts, the gehry music hall, santa monica pier and looking down at PCH, the tar pits…. ahhhh, home. And its great they even went guerrilla street art on the crossing signals to make them elephants!

There’s also an elephant parade in Rotterdam now. There are these elephants decorated by artists from several countries. The elephants will be auctioned off in November
