Furniture gives interiors character and identity but it takes accessories to define a truly personal atmosphere, an individual collage reflecting the spirit of the occupant. Charles and Ray Eames are a prominent example of designers who recognized this insight. Throughout their varied career, they not only created an impressive number of furniture classics but also designed and collected accessories that are produced by Vitra. The House Bird, a memento brought back from their travels, is one of these objects. Occupying a central position in the Eames House, this figure of a wooden bird features prominently in many of the photographs taken by the designer couple. The Classic Trays series features motifs by Charles and Ray Eames as well as the designers Alexander Girard and George Nelson. The vivid colors of the trays are rivaled by the pillows from the Maharam Collection, which also includes contributions from Verner Panton. And two other designers chose a bird motif for an accessory: L’Oiseau created for Vitra by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.
