Description

Vitra’s charming Elephant mouse pad draws inspiration from the Eames Elephant, created by Charles and Ray Eames in the 1940s. The expressive mouse mats, designed by Hella Jongerius, are made from surplus leather from Vitra's furniture production to minimize waste. The soft and supple feel of the high-quality leather also makes the refined Elephant mouse pad particularly comfortable to use. A mood-boosting pad adds a bit of fun and functionality to your work desk – and it is also a great gift idea for a friend or colleague!
