Not too long ago, in a land not too far away, the DP staff sat around and talked about the Eames Elephants.

We love them.

We love them so much we could spend (actually, have spent) hours watching this video by eamesdemetrios:

Hats off to Vitra for going into production with the elephants! Although we love the plywood originals, the new plastic version from Vitra will do just fine.

I wish I could “hop the pond” as they say and see the place in person.

Nonetheless, how amazing would it be to have the space to house an incredibly long table with rows and rows of Panton chairs? Ahhh, eye candy.

And while the adults are eating, the kids could sit on more Panton chairs (near the old energy converters, of course) and watch cartoons.

If I was Tom Hanks and I had to temporarily live in an airport like he did in The Terminal, hands down my pick of residences would be the Zurich Airport. As expected for an airport in Switzerland, there were so many quality architectural and design worthy items worth drooling over…from the stairs, to the ceilings, to the check-in counters to the wall lightings to the clocks…
