    Vitra Miniatures Collection: Eames® Plywood Elephant
    Charles and Ray Eames were fascinated by elephants. Many images of these gentle giants are found in Charles' photographic documentations of Indian culture and the circus world. The Eames Plywood Elephant (1945) is among the plywood pieces designed by the Eameses and one of the most difficult to produce. In the early 1940s, they successfully developed an innovative method for molding plywood into three-dimensional shapes, which they used to produce a wide range of furniture and sculptural objects. To render the Elephant, tight angles and compound curves require a sophisticated mastery of plywood technology. It was so complicated that the full-size Plywood Elephant never went into production. Only two prototypes were made, both of which were displayed at the Museum of Modern Art in 1945 and 1946. Today only one known model remains in the possession of the Eames family. Vitra Design Museum has reproduced the Plywood Elephant at a scale of 1:6. True to the original pieces in structure and, the miniatures are precision-crafted, making them a thoughtful gift for a furniture lover or design professional. Each miniature comes handsomely packaged in a wood box with an informational booklet. Made in Poland.

    Vitra Wooden Dolls By Alexander Girard
    Design Alexander Girard, 1963. Solid firwood, hand painted. Made in Poland by Vitra. Alongside Charles and Ray Eames as well as George Nelson, Alexander Girard was one of the decisive figures in post-War American design. The focus of his broad oeuvre was on textile design, and a key source of inspiration for him was his passion for the popular art of South America, Asia and East Europe. The Wooden Dolls, which Girard created for his own home in Santa Fe and made himself, are likewise inspired by his own extensive collection of works of popular art. Half decorative element, half toy, the Wooden Dolls were originally intended only for personal use. Based on documents and originals found in the Girard Estate held by the Vitra Design Museum, the partly joyful, partly grim-looking company of dolls is now coming out as a limited edition as a charming enhancement to any interior. Alexander Girard was educated in Europe as an architect. Returning to the United States in 1932, his designs defined a new kind of ?"opulent modernism," a look that became synonymous with 1960s America. His pioneering work in fabric design as well as his innovative commercial and residential interiors, captivated the public with their theatricality. Girard described himself as ?"a reasonable and sane functionalist, tempered by irrational frivolity."

    Vitra Eames House Bird
    Charles & Ray Eames®, 1910. Solid Alder, steel. Made in Germany by Vitra. Charles and Ray Eames augmented the interior "collage" of the Eames House with numerous objects brought back from their extensive travels. The figure of a black wooden bird - evidently one of their most prized objects of American folk art - has stood in the center of their living room for over fifty years. Also seen as an accessory in many of the Eames' photographs, the bird figure was from the Appalachian mountain region of the eastern United States. Based on the original artifact and in cooperation with the Eames family, Vitra is now producing the first series of this figure. With a grand sense of adventure, Charles and Ray Eames turned their curiosity and boundless enthusiasm into creations that established them as a truly great husband-and-wife design team. Their unique synergy led to a whole new look in furniture. Lean and modern. Playful and functional. Sleek, sophisticated, and beautifully simple. That was and is the "Eames look." The Eames house bird is made from solid Alder with a black lacquer finish and steel wire legs. 11" h | 3.25" w | 11" L.

    Vitra Bovist Floor Cushion
    Design Hella Jongerius, 2005. Fabric cover (70% viscous, 30% linen), polystyrene beads. Made in Germany by Vitra. Bovist is a decorative floor cushion, stool, and ottoman all in one. Its compact, round shape is reminiscent of a puffball (Bovist in German). It offers a high degree of seating comfort and stability with a filling of small plastic balls. Large sections of embroidery give the cover, which consists of different colored fabrics, a particular charm and there is a knitted thread handle for moving Bovist to different places in the home. Hella Jongerius developed several motifs that are full of innuendo and ironic allusions. The first motif, called Lacemaker, shows the head of a girl engrossed in embroidery and is borrowed from a painting by the Dutch master Vermeer van Delft. The portrait is surrounded by a freely formed, looped pattern. The second motif, Pottery, consists of an arrangement of ancient-looking pitchers with little embroidered hearts rising up between them like bubbles. Jongerious uses various stitching styles and different coloured threads for the embroidery, which is realized with the aid of a computer-controlled machine. It gives the images additional charm. Lacemaker colors: burgundy, beige & blue. Pottery colors: dark grey, light blue & blue. Dove colors: brown, green & blue. 21.25" dia. | 15" h.

    George Nelson: China Shop Classic Tray: China Shop shows silhouettes of various vases, bowls, mugs, glasses, etc. within a 3 color harmony. The differing motifs of the Classic Trays show individual character and are typical of the graphic vocabulary of the designers involved. The quality of furnishings does not only manifest itself in large objects. As important as the choice and composition of furniture, lighting and textiles are for our sense of well-being at home. It’s the small things - the various accessories, pictures, plants, mementos and occasional finds we have collected - that play a major role in our emotional attachment to the home. In recent decades only a few designers like Charles and Ray Eames , Alexander Girard and George Nelson , have been aware of this. Starting with the same ideas in the mid twentieth century they created furnishings and equipment in which small things always had an important place. It is with this thought in mind that the Classic Trays now being brought onto the market by the Vitra Design Museum should be viewed.

    Vitra - Girard Wool Blanket Double Heart
    The two-colours pattern of the Girard wool blankets were initially created for as print motives for decorative wall panels, fabrics or cushions. The graphic patterns were now realized in Jaquard weaving technique as wool blankets in cooperation of Vitra with the Girard family. This has for an effect that the combinations of powerful and opaque tones appear in changing compositions. Alexander Girard became head of the textiles department at Herman Miller, which is the reason why numerous patterns and textile designs appeared by him in the 1950s. Girard was part of a design team, which influenced the basics of design deciding together with George Neslon and Charles and Ray Eames – starting in the United States, going to the world. Based on his architectural career, Girard created some famous textiles collections, embossed with simple geometric forms, such as stripes, spheres and triangles. Many of the popular and classic designs, made by Girard as upholstery and coating fabrics or curtains, are still available and haven’t lost any of their modernity. More details: Material: 100% merino lamb wool, made in Jacquard weaving technique. Characteristics; Merino lamb wool is a high class natural fibre and comes from the first shearing of the merino lamb. It is weightless, very fine, soft to be touched and it is perfectly heat compensating. Quality: A lot of technical and manual know-how is needed to process natural fibres. That’s the reason why the Vitra blankets are made by a German blankets manufactory which has more than 100 years of experience of work with natural fibres. The high class realization of the sketches demands a lot of handwork.

    Corniches arose from the need for small storage spaces to spontaneously keep items. “The same way that we hang our belongings on a rock jutting from a cliff before diving into the sea, we need small, informal storage in everyday life too”, explains Ronan Bouroullec. And this is the reason that Corniches are neither regular shelves nor simple horizontal surfaces, but rather individual, isolated protrusions in the environments that we create. Whether as a key rack beside the front door, a spot to put everything we need to have at our fingertips in the bathroom, as a pedestal for a small collection of objects or as a large installation, Corniches are a new way to use the wall in the living space. Available in 3 sizes and 6 colours - white, black, Japanese red, dark grey, khaki and orange.

    Vitra Classic Tray, The Family
    Ray Eames: The Family Classic Tray: The Family Classic Tray motif, designed by Ray Eames, was originally intended for a cover of the "Arts & Architecture" magazine. It depicts on a brown-grey background the bright, simplified outlines of many people against which a family in black is silhouetted. The differing motifs of the Classic Trays show individual character and are typical of the graphic vocabulary of the designers involved. The quality of furnishings does not only manifest itself in large objects. As important as the choice and composition of furniture, lighting and textiles are for our sense of well-being at home. It’s the small things - the various accessories, pictures, plants, mementos and occasional finds we have collected - that play a major role in our emotional attachment to the home. In recent decades only a few designers like Charles and Ray Eames , Alexander Girard and George Nelson , have been aware of this. Starting with the same ideas in the mid twentieth century they created furnishings and equipment in which small things always had an important place. It is with this thought in mind that the Classic Trays now being brought onto the market by the Vitra Design Museum should be viewed.

    vitra George Nelson Ceramic Clocks
    Design George Nelson, 1953. Porcelain, color glaze, sheet metal, quartz movement. Made in Germany by vitra. Around 1950, Americans had a deeply rooted conviction in uninterrupted progress and never-ending economic prosperity. Nothing seemed to be impossible and everyone wanted to be modern. George Nelson designed a range of products offering a new and unconventional interpretation of such everyday items as lamps, wall clocks and other domestic accessories. Up to the 1970s Nelson's New York design office created a wide range of models. These included the "bubble lamp" and the "ball clock" - items that have been promoted as icons of 1950s design. With the Ceramic Clocks, the first thing that catches the eye is their playful design and their shape. These table clocks have a somewhat geometric yet organic look about them that is evocative of sculptures by artists such as Constantin Brancusi or Isamu Noguchi. The clock cases are entirely made of glazed ceramics. The colors used, and the design of the clock faces in particular, leave us in no doubt as to their functional purpose. The Ceramic Clocks were designed in the early 1950s and developed as far as the production stage. For reasons unknown, however, they never made it to the production line. Based on the original plans and prototypes, the Vitra Design Museum is now, for the first time ever, bringing these original quartz movement clocks to the market.

    Vitra Eames House Bird
    Charles and Ray Eames augmented the interior 'collage” of the Eames House with numerous objects brought back from their extensive travels. The figure of a black wooden bird — evidently one of their most prized objects of American folk art — has stood in the centre of their living room for over fifty years. Also seen as an accessory in many of the Eames’ photographs. The bird has its origin in the mountains region of the Appalachians in the North East of the USA. Leaning on the original design and in cooperation with the Eames family, Vitra produced this figure as a serial object for the first time. The small house bird out of solid alder looks confusingly similar to real birds and fills the everyday life with happiness.
