Elephant Pad

Hella Jongerius, 2010

Designer Hella Jongerius drew her inspiration for the Elephant Pad from the Eames Elephant by Charles and Ray Eames. The charming mouse pad is made from high-quality leather: to make sustainable use of leather left over from the production of upholstered furniture, Vitra uses it to craft small objects – such as the Elephant Pads. These are available in the six colours of leather most frequently used in production and have a soft and pleasant feel.
