ART OF PLAY - PLAYING CARDS - EAMES HANG IT ALL - EDITION 2
Charles and Ray Eames brought a sense of playfulness to midcentury design, imbuing everyday objects with unexpected joy. This second edition of Eames Playing Cards embraces this approach with a celebration of their iconic Hang It All wall rack. The first think you'll notice is the jubilant color palette of the early 1950s. The visual motif is a clear homage to the stick and ball components of the original design. However, in adapting the Hang It All to a new form, we made a surprising delivery. When traditional playing card symbols are replaced with numerals, the result is more logical and visually cohesive. So, inspired by the rebellious spirit Ray and Charles were famous for, you will notice there aren't any Kings or Queens in this deck; the cards are simply numbered 1 to 13, a subtle but gently revolutionary gesture.
Eames Playing Cards come packaged in a letterpress printed box reminiscent of the home that Charles and Ray designed and built in Los Angeles, California. Made in the USA.
