Charles and Ray Eames designed this set of cards in 1952 to give young and old an opportunity to explore their creativity as a constructeur. Each card depicts a familar object from everyday life with a clever system of six interlocking slots along the sides, enabling players to build daring card towers that test the laws of gravity and balance. The three-dimensional creations never cease to surprise as each structure differs in its form and combinations of patterns. The fun-spirited game fosters the imagination and reflects each individual’s understanding and perception of space and environment. Charles & Ray Eames were convinced that good, functional design can be found all around us. The Eames House of Cards demonstrates this in a form that inspires and delights children and adults alike.
