About the Designer
Charles & Ray Eames Charles & Ray Eames United States 

Charles Ormond Eames, Jr (1907–1978) and Bernice Alexandra "Ray" (née Kaiser) Eames (1912–1988) were American designers, who worked in and made major contributions to modern architecture and furniture. They also worked in the fields of industrial and graphic design, fine art and film.

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 - has stood in the centre of their living room for over fifty years. This bird figure from the Appalachian mountain region of the eastern United States has been seen as an accessory in many of the Eames’ photographs. Based on the original artefact in cooperation with the Eames Family, the house bird will be a special piece for many years to come.

Design:
  • Design is the process by which almost all objects in Vitra's surroundings are instilled with a specific design and function - from cars to paper clips, from clothing to chairs. And design does not just mean giving things a shape. Design creates the basis which enables things to function in the desired manner. It is a process in which complementary but often mutually contradictory requirements have to be met (comfort, technology, ergonomics, ecology, economics, aesthetics). Design can be successful only when the balance of all these factors is attained.
Quality:
  • Once in the factory, Vitra staff manufacture furniture to precise standards, individually ensuring the quality of each product.
  • Vitra has been certified for DIN EN ISO 9001 : 2000.
  • Vitra's focus on quality does not end at the factory door - they believe that providing clients with exceptional service is just as important as manufacturing furniture. In order to make certain Vitra clients enjoy consistently high quality in all Vitra products, they have set up their own test center which monitors products against criteria that are far more stringent than the statutory standards.
Ergonomics:
  • Ergonomics is an applied science that studies the relationship between human beings and machines. Vitra produces furniture that responds to the ergonomic requirements of the body and as a consequence has a positive effect on health and well-being. All Vitra products (except for the experimental series Vitra Edition) have been tested by independent institutions. They comply with prescribed standards under the European Directive on VDU Work and are marked with the GS seal (= Geprüfte Sicherheit or Tested Safety, seal of the independent certification company LGA).
Ecology:
  • Vitra's contribution to ecological conservation does not stop with a close examination of materials and processes. All aspects of the company's work involve ecological thinking.
  • In 1991, Vitra set up an internal ecology committee to discuss environmental topics. This team identifies new tasks, and its project teams work together to find solutions.
  • Vitra uses only non-CFC foams and adhesives free of toxic solvents; all possible materials are recycled. Wherever possible, Vitra uses recycled materials.
  • Vitra's goal during production is to minimize noise and emission levels as well as to reduce waste. Packaging materials are kept to a minimum and re-used as often as possible.

Awesome, but Delicate

 from Boston, MA– Verified Buyer

I love this bird. Unfortunately, he's a bit delicate. Because he sits on two nails for legs and rests on about an inch of thin tail, he can easily be toppled over if he gets in the way! And when he falls, his "feathers" and beak get chipped pretty easily. I am now the proud owner of two Eames House Birds, both a bit damaged but very much loved!

I had heard about Eames designs, yet nothing can compare to actually seeing one of their products for the first time. This bird is a design beauty. Its simplicity and line speak volumes in any setting.

the bird

 from santa cruz, CA– Verified Buyer

A highly priced but beautiful piece of art. The feet are nails with the points down. I had to buy some rubber caps to protect my furniture.
