Charles & Ray Eames

Elephants Or Molded Plywood

Starting in 1941 with the experimental molded plywood chair seats and the Kazam! machine, Charles and Ray Eames continued their explorations with the splint, litters and arm splints in 1941 - 1944, eventually selling the plywood splints to the US Navy during World War II. Concurrently, their love of sculptural forms, toys and the circus (with its organized chaos resembling the practice of design) Charles and Ray also created beautiful molded plywood sculptures and toys. Molded plywood elephants, now also made in kid-friendly polypropylene are available today.
