Eames Giant House Of Cards

The Eameses designed the House of Cards as a construction toy comprised of 20 large interlocking slotted cards. The images and patterns printed on them are of what Eameses called “good stuff “, chosen to celebrate “familiar and nostalgic objects from the animal, vegetable, and mineral kingdoms.”

The card sets come in 3 sizes, small, medium and large (giant), and at one time came in a number of alternate designs: Computer House of Cards (1970) and Newton House of Cards for the 1974 Nobel Laureates.
