Charles and Ray Eames, the married couple that has contributed to many fields including industrial design, furniture design, art, graphic design, film and architecture would travel around the world collecting local folk artifacts. Among the objects they acquired was a wooden figure of a black bird from the Appalachian region in the Eastern United States. This figure would often appear in many photographs of Eames’ living room starting from the 1950s. Vitra will be now be reproducing this 11 inch tall figure for people to purchase. Available at inhabit and hhstyle.
Out of all the vinyls and figures out there in this culture, the Bearbricks remain probably the most popular of them all mainly due to the people they work with.

You probably won’t be able to buy this anywhere so it’ll probably be better to give up now just like we did.
