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.

The Eames House Bird rose to stardom in the 1950s when Charles and Ray Eames pulled it from their own living room and positioned it with a group of Eames DKR chairs for a poster. This masterfully simplistic black bird (circa 1910) with tapered beak and sleek tail was one of their most prized objects of folk art. In cooperation with the Eames family, Vitra used 3-D scans of the original to create the solid alder wood reproduction. Made in Germany.
