eames bird

405.00

now produced by vitra, a bird was part of the eames household for years. charles and ray eames liked collecting items from their travels and this wooden bird in walnut wood, an artefact of american folk art, soon became a staple accessory in their home and work life. it seems that the story of the bird is born from an event as well: charles was working on a photo shoot for their latest creation, the eames wire chair. nine identical chairs, attached one to another in a seemingly messy pile; white background, black chairs. the photo did not work. ray came in, gently, and, without saying a word, approached the chairs and added an object: a black wooden bird, the one they had bought together during a trip in the appalachian mountains and which they had kept for years in the living room, next to the couch.

the chairs were sold immediately and the little bird, which looks like a raven but it is not, became an icon. 10 years ago vitra decided to reproduce it in an exact 1: 1 copy. and the eames bird, from a bird decoys has become the dream for many designers. the designer of the bird, too, was charles: charles perdew, who with his wife edna sculpted and decorated bird decoys for hunters.

made of solid walnut wood with steel legs.

measurements: 33cm l x 32cm h x 12cm w / 10.75"l x 3.5"w x 11"h
