Revell Toy House

1959

In the late ’50s, the Eames Office designed a model house kit in ¾-inch scale, completely furnished with miniature Eames furniture and accessories.

Designed for a toy manufacturer named Revell Company, the kit was to include a system of modular units of structural grids and panels made by Revell out of injection-molded plastic.  Charles and Ray designed the rooms and spaces in varying sizes that they could be built into one, two, three and four-level structures.

While the office made prototypes for the kit, it never went into production because the Eameses believed there were too many unresolved production problems.
