Eames Elephant film


In 1945, pioneering designers Charles and Ray Eames created a playful molded plywood elephant. The legendary elephants never went into production but now, in honor of Charles Eames's 100th birthday, the elephants are available in a limited edition. As part of the celebration, Charles's grandson, Eames Demetrios, made a delightful stop-motion animation of the elephants. It's titled "A Gathering of Elephants."
