Made in the U.S.A. by Playsam.
Introduced as part of the Eames Century Modern project, this clever set of alphabet blocks is also a model of the landmark Eames House and Studio. The blocks form an educational puzzle image of this monument to American mid-century design and architecture while also showcasing letters, numerals and symbols from the Eames Century Modern collection.
Includes 36 Alphabet Blocks (20 for the house, 16 for the studio) made from replenishable Michigan-grown, kiln-dried basswood and printed with non-toxic, lead-free, child-safe inks.
Sitting high atop the Pacific Palisades overlooking Santa Monica and the Pacific Ocean, the original Eames House was built in 1949 as No. 8 in the series of Case Study Houses and is still recognized for its revolutionary use of space and materials. Charles and Ray Eames moved into the house in 1950 and it was continuously occupied until Ray's death in 1988. The House and Studio is now managed by the Eames Foundation, which oversees its preservation and administers tours to foundation members.
