Description

The Vitra House Whale is a small scale reproduction of the original house whale which hung in Charles and Ray Eames' House - a wooden whale which was over 2m in length - and featured in many photo shoots, including the first photos of the Eames Lounge Chair. As collectors of folk art and other items they found on their travels the Eames' were extremely fond of hand painted objects and particularly those from the natural world.

'We never collected anything just as collectors, but because something was inherent in the piece that made it seem like a good idea to be looking at' - Ray Eames.

Together they organised their living space with tremendous joy, making the Eames House a developing and ever changing collage and reflection of their life.

The House Whale is a large piece at 70cm long and hand crafted from ash before being hand painted. A beautiful object for any fan of the Eames' or the natural world.
