Charles and Ray Eames brought a sense of playfulness to midcentury design, imbuing everyday objects with unexpected joy. Art of Play's second edition of Eames Playing Cards embraces this approach with a celebration of their iconic Hang-It-All wall rack.
The first thing 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, they made a surprising discovery. 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, Art of Play decided to ditch the aristocracy entirely and adopt a more minimalist approach.
