Charles and Ray Eames enriched the collage-like interior of their private home, the Eames House, with numerous objects and accessories that they brought back from their travels. For over fifty years, the figure of a black wooden bird has stood in the centre of the living room an artefact of American folk art that was evidently highly treasured by the couple, since it also appeared frequently as an accessory in photographs taken by Charles and Ray.


Dimensions: 27.8 x 8.5 x 27.6cm high

Charles and Ray Eames discovered a black bird figure on one of their many extensive travels. Evidently highly treasured by the couple, this artefact of American folk art has stood in the centre of the living room of the legendary Eames House in Pacific Palisades, California ever since.

Therefore the Eames bird was not originally designed by Eames but has become a mascot of both Vitra and Ray and Charles Eames and is in production by Vitra.

The Eames House Bird from Vitra, made of alder wood in a black lacquer finish with black steel wire legs, is an understated yet expressive object, and a perfect decorative addition to any interior.
