Eames House Bird


Charles and Ray Eames: Eames House Bird
Vitra, Germany.


Looking for a cool pet which requires no maintenance? The Eames House Bird may just be what you are looking for! It doesn't do any monkey business and as a bonus, you don't need to cope with the squawking and screeching of a real bird flying around your living room or bedroom. Now won't you agree you will be a lot happier with a wooden bird?

The Eames House Bird by Vitra is a beautiful and highly decorative modern accent piece! Charles and Ray Eames augmented the interior collage of the Eames House with numerous objects brought back from their extensive travels. Produced in Appalachia in the 1910s, this anonymous black bird from the Eames House rose to stardom in the 1950s when it appeared in silhouette with a group of Eames DKR chairs. The figure of a black wooden bird — evidently one of their most prized objects of American folk art — has stood in the center of the Eames House living room for over fifty years. The Eames House Bird is also seen as an accessory in many of the photographs which were taken by Charles and Ray Eames.
