For the motif, Dutch designer Hella Jongerius took her inspiration from an emblematic image in the history of Vitra: the elephant. It served as a model for a playful decorative object created by Charles and Ray Eames back in the 1940s, which was recently reissued by Vitra. The elephant is made of high-quality Vitra furniture leather. This natural leather will have a rich patina over time.
