E-O-Rama: Eames & Elephants = Excellent

Charles Eames was an amazing designer, who would have celebrated his 100th birthday this year.

Cleverly the Eames Office came up with a unqiue and totally cool way to help celebrate.

Not only have they released limited numbers of the plywood elephants; designed in 1945 but never previously produced; but have created a fun, short, stop-motion film about them titled "A Gathering of Elephants."

Whether you are a fan of Eames, a fan of stop-motion animation, or a fan of elephants you'll love this little film.

The film was directed by Eames Dementrios (Eames grandson) and features the acting talents of Mr. L. A. Phant and Ms. Ella Faant.
