The Eames Playing Cards are a USA-made collaboration between the Art of Play and the Eames Office, created to pay homage to the house that Charles and Ray Eames designed, built and lived in. Featuring a unique, edged numbering system based on the Eameses’ classic film Powers of Ten, this first edition showcases the Eames Office Starburst Logo on the backs. The court cards honor the natural majesty the Eames saw in elemental geometric shapes. The Eames Playing Cards are printed on FSC-certified paper with vegetable-based inks. Their letterpress-printed box measures 3.5h x 2.5w x 0.5"d.

Charles (1907–1978) and Ray (1912–1988) Eames were two of the most influential designers of the 20th century. In 1941, this husband-and-wife team founded their Los Angeles-based design practice, the Eames Office, and in the same year an important design by Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen, the Organic Chair, was exhibited at a MoMA exhibition celebrating the winning entries of its Organic Design in Home Furnishings competition. Eames designs have been featured in dozens of MoMA exhibitions, including New Furniture Designs by Charles Eames (1946), Prize Designs for Modern Furniture (1950), Plywood: Material, Process, Form (2011–2013) and The Value of Good Design (2019).
