The Story
Since Green Bird Press is based out of a mid-century modern house I felt the need to honor one of the great design teams of the twentieth century with our first collection. So I created magnesium plates featuring silhouettes based on the well-known furniture designs of Charles and Ray Eames. I'm finally getting around to expanding this and creating designs inspired by other famous Mid-Century designers.

This is Arne Jacobsen's Egg Chair, originally created in 1958 for the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. The Egg originated in Arne Jacobsen's garage - cast in plaster. Today the synthetic shell is padded with cold foam and covered with fabric or different types of leather resting on a star-shaped aluminium base. It is a classic icon of modern Danish furniture design.

Cards are printed on 100lb Pop Tone card stock made by The French Paper Company, one of the last small independently run paper mills in America. French Paper produces many wonderful papers and is extremely environmentally friendly, which makes us happy.

If you are interested in purchase more than the listed quantity please send me a convo, I often have more in stock but if I don't I can let you know when I'll have more printed and ready to ship and we can put together a custom order.
