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 has its origin in the mountains region of the Appalachians in the North East of the USA. Leaning on the original design and in cooperation with the Eames family, Vitra produced this figure as a serial object for the first time.
The small house bird out of solid alder looks confusingly similar to real birds and fills the everyday life with happiness.
Charles Eames, born in 1907 in Saint Louis, Missouri - Ray Eames, born as Bernice Alexandra Kaiser in 1912 in Sacramento, Kalifornien designed trend-setting designs, which can be found wordlwide in numerous museums. Designer Charles & Ray Eames
