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

Charles and Ray Eames designed House of Cards in the 1950s. These picture card decks have become universal favorites, and are even represented in the Museum of Modern Art collection. Each card shows a different object, all of which Charles and Ray refer to as “the good stuff” selected to celebrate”familiar and nostalgic objects from the animal, vegetable, and mineral kingdoms.”

The six slots on each card enable the player to interlock the cards to build structures in a myriad of 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.
