Product Story

Originally picked up on the Eames' journey through the Appalachian mountains, the figure of a black wooden bird stood pride of place in their living room for over fifty years.

Frequently appearing in photo shoots, and even featuring on a 1952 cover of the Architectural Review, the Eames House Bird has since become a signifying object of the Eames and Vitra brand.

Made in black lacquered solid alder wood and finished with steel wire legs, this incarnation of the Eames House Bird has been created using a 3D scan of the original, adding a decorative touch to the mid-century inspired home.
