The Vitra Eames Bird was designed by Charles and Ray Eames who 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 black wooden bird has stood in the centre of the living room - an artefact of American folk art that was evidently highly treasured by the couple, since it also appeared frequently as an accessory in photographs taken by Charles and Ray.
Charles & Ray Eames are among the most important American designers of the 20th century.
The Eameses are best known for their groundbreaking contributions to architecture, furniture design, industrial design and manufacturing, and the photographic arts.
