3) Reebok x Eames Office Classic Leather: Fiberglass

Draped in a custom-developed leather that has been painstakingly patterned to mimic the texture of Fiberglass, the Reebok x Eames Classic Leather Fiberglass Pack’s monotone uppers sit elegantly atop the shoes’ crisp natural rubber two-piece midsole.  The Parchment and Sea Foam Green colorways are two of the earliest Eames Molded Fiberglass Chair color options offered when the range debuted in 1950.  The Pink color dates from 1968 when more vivid hues appeared in the line.

4) Limited Eames Birch Mobile A

In celebration of the Eames Office 80th anniversary this year, we are exhibiting Eames Office: 80 Years of Design at Isetan’s gallery for modern and contemporary design ISETAN THE SPACE in Shinjuku Tokyo, Japan.  This special, limited edition version of the 1941 Eames Plywood Mobile was released in a natural birch veneer for the event.

5) The Eames Toy

After nearly 60 years, the Eames Office has reintroduced one of the most sought after Eames collectibles for people of all ages to enjoy and experience.  The Eames Toy is a large-scale building toy that echoes the Eamesian principle of modular systems.

7) Vintage Computer House of Cards

The Computer House of Cards, designed by Charles and Ray Eames, date back to the IBM Pavilion at the 1970 World’s Fair in Osaka, Japan.

These cards were created as souvenirs for guests and were only printed once — making them tremendously rare. As such a rare item, the Computer House of Cards is an extremely desirable collector’s item for Eames enthusiasts and technology buffs around the world.

Each image exhibits part of the inner workings of a computer in stunning detail and clarity. In the time before the microchip was invented, the skeleton of computer technology looked much different. As such, these Cards are the perfect frame to capture a record of what a 1970 pre-microchip computer looked like.

8) Eames Furniture Source Book

Eames Furniture Source Book provides readers with a comprehensive overview of their furniture, which includes design milestones such as the Plywood Group, the Wire and the Plastic Chairs, the Aluminum Group, and the legendary Lounge Chair. Through detailed texts and extensive photographic material, it reconstructs the genesis of these and other pioneering designs, shedding light on the duo’s innovative use of materials and techniques, and analyzing the significance of their work within the context of their time. The Eames Collection held at the Vitra Design Museum serves as the basis of this book and includes prototypes, experiments, and study models from the Eames Office.

9) Gelato Pique x The Eames Toy – Loungewear Set

The soft and fluffy texture of Gelato Pique’s signature textile is retained, but the yarn is made
from recycled plastic bottles to create an earth-friendly product. The relaxed silhouette of the
Cowichan hoodie with a generous body width and hip-hugging length provides a sense of
security and comfort. Enjoy with a matching set of long, cozy pants.

10) House of Cards Collector’s Edition

The new 2022 Collectors Edition features rich images of “good stuff” from all editions of the House of Cards line.  For the first time patterns and pictures from the original Small House of Cards, bold graphics from the Giant House of Cards, and rare images from the 1970s Computer House of Cards are curated together to form one robust deck.
