the work of israeli industrial designer dor keenan, ‘race cards’ combine the childhood nostalgia of toy cars and playing cards into a playful reuse project. keenan uses the process of vacuuforming (vacuum forming) on playing cards, using them as the top and bottom components for a pullback-style racing car. the pullback component (as well as the wheel axles) is mounted inside the form created. the diversity of playing card backs, in combination with the 52 front designs for each pack, offers visual variety.
