Play Parade. An Eames Exhibition for Kids

The designers Charles and Ray Eames regarded play as the foundation of all creativity. The exhibition »Play Parade« is based on this approach. It assembles toys and short films by the Eameses in a spatial installation full of shapes and colours. The exhibits include architectural structures and films in which toys come to life – an environment for observing, discovering and interacting. Both children and adults who have remained young at heart are invited to immerse themselves in a world inspired by the Eameses, where toys are precursors to great ideas and the motto of Charles Eames finds expression: »Take your pleasure seriously!«. The exhibition kicks off the six-month festival entitled »An Eames Celebration«.
