I stumbled upon something fun the other day while pinning to MMC's Pinterest board, Everything Eames. One might think that in this business, with as much research that I do, I would have seen this before now. But somehow I had not, and now I am going to have to have it!
Charles and Ray Eames did many things in their lifetimes to shape the world of architecture and design. They designed homes, created furniture, textiles, wrote books, made toys, just to name a few. And now for that thing I just have to have!
Charles said this "Toys are not really as innocent as they look. Toys and games are preludes to serious ideas." In the 1950's they created the House of Cards, which are slotted cards with images on both sides, depicting the animal, mineral and vegetable kingdoms. You can assemble these cards in all sorts of ways, large or small. Let you imagination run wild. A serious idea may just happen! These fantastic cards come in small, medium and giant. I am going to buy mine and take them to MMC to see what the Collective can create. You can buy yours here.
