Partitions is another innovative design by the talented Pit Khiam Goh. Comprised of eight identical interlocking pieces, the goal is to take the puzzle apart and put it back together again. Even though there are only ten moves in the solution, it's trickier than you might expect and plays with assumptions you may have about lattice puzzles.
Made of precision-machined brass with a nice grain imparted by the brushed finish, Partitions has a pleasant weight, and a solid feel when assembled. Equally fun to pick up and play with as it is to solve, it makes a lovely display piece to keep on your desk, so it's always handy for fidgeting.
This puzzle ships assembled. The solution is available upon request.
Handling Metal Puzzles
Whilst I haven’t solved this puzzle fully yet, (it’s still sat on my desk) it’s a perfect example of puzzle meets art piece. The weight and feel is great with a really fun fidget factor.
As with all of Eric’s puzzles, Partitions is a beautiful, clever, well-made puzzle. The brushed finish on the brass just makes you want to stare at the detail of the perfect machining until those beautiful pieces beg you to take them apart and solve the puzzle. This was quite tricky for me, especially since I don’t solve many interlocking puzzles, but I had a ton of fun figuring this one out. The moves are so simple, once the solution is realized, but complex enough to feel like you got a solid puzzling session in. Well done Eric and team!
