Vitra Eames House Bird Walnut
Designer: Charles & Ray Eames
This is an original genuine Vitra piece.
A prized possession of Charles and Ray Eames, the House Bird has been a decorative part of the collage-like Eames House interior for decades.
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 wooden bird has stood in the centre of the living room - an artefact of American folk art that was evidently highly treasure by the couple, since it also appeared frequently as an accessory in photographs taken by Charles and Ray.
