Eames House Bird
The Eames House Bird became part of the "interior "collage" of the Eames House, along with numerous objects brought back from Charles and Ray Eames' extensive travels. The figure of a black wooden bird, known as the Eames House Bird, was evidently one of their most prized objects of American folk art and 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 Eames House Bird originates 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 series of this figure.
