“Toys are not really as innocent as they look. Toys and games are preludes to serious ideas.”

Charles and Ray Eames designed the Medium House of Cards in continuation of the original House of Cards deck beloved since the 1950s. Each card depicts a different object, all of which Charles and Ray refer to as “the good stuff” chosen to celebrate “familiar and nostalgic objects from the animal, vegetable, and mineral kingdoms.”  The Small House of Cards originally had two decks; a picture and a pattern deck. This Medium House of Cards features the images from the pattern deck.

The six slots on each card enable the player to interlock the cards so as to build structures of myriad shapes and sizes.

Charles & Ray Eames

Toys

Charles and Ray were serious about the designing of objects—from the initial brainstorming of constraints to an item’s longevity through the decades—and simultaneously, they derived many of their design processes from toys. The intrinsic qualities of toys taught the Eameses that a design could be unselfconscious, simple in its use of materials, and provoke a feeling of delight.
