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.
Carved out of solid alder and finished with black lacquer, the Eames House Bird by Vitra is an iconic accessory for the home, commonly perched upon a shelf. Founded in 1950, Vitra is a Swiss company with headquarters in Birsfelden, Switzerland. It is manufacturer of the works of many internationally renowned furniture designers.
