Solid alder, black lacquer finish, steel wire.



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 from the Applachian mountain region of the eastern United States — has stood in the centre of their living room for over 50 years. Also seen as an accessory in many of the Eameses’ photographs.

The Eames House bird is made from solid alder wood with a black lacquered finish. Feet in black powder-coated steel wire. Based on the original artefact and in co-operation with the Eames Family, Vitra is now reproducing the first series of the House Bird.
