The Vitra Eames House Bird is based on an original design which graced the interior of the Eames house along with numerous objects brought back from their extensive travels. The original black wooden was one of their most prized objects of American Folk Art and stood in the centre of their living room for over fifty years. It can also be seen as an accessory in many of the Eames' photographs.
Vitra have now released a limited edition of 1000 Gold House Bird's for collectors in 2016. The alder wood House Bird now wears a golden feather coat, with gold leaf having been applied by hand, covering both the body and the filigree legs. A transparent lacquer protects the noble surface and lets the plumage shine.
Every House bird is delivered in a special edition box with a certificate proving the unique serial number of the House Bird Gold Edition by Vitra, as part of the limited edition of totally 1000 pieces.
