Eames House Bird By Vitra - Walnut215 031 02
Eames House Bird by Vitra.
Charles and Ray Eames augmented the interior “collage” of the Eames House with numerous objects brought back from their extensive travels. The figure of a black wooden bird — evidently one of their most prized objects of American folk art — has stood in the centre of their living room for over fifty years.
Also seen as an accessory in many of the Eames’ photographs, the bird from the Appalachian mountain region of the eastern United States. Based on the original artifact and in cooperation with the Eames Family, Vitra is now producing the first Eames House Bird series of this figure.
