Five Cubes Puzzle (2022)

DESIGNER: Kohno Ichiro
MATERIAL: Leopardwood 
RELEASE DATE: 4.25.2022
SIZE: 2" (5.1 cm)

Five Cubes by Kohno Ichiro is the final and trickiest iteration of his brilliant concept. By careful use of magnetic polarity, the pieces are dissimilar despite their appearance. The goal is again to assemble the pieces into a symmetrical shape of five distinct, equal-sized cubes with none of the cubes overlapping their neighbor by more than one-half cube. All magnets must be engaged for the final shape to be stable.

Once solved, the puzzle snaps into place, resulting in a beautiful and entertaining fidget toy. Five Cubes belongs to a set including the Three Cubes and Four Cubes puzzles. Each escalates in difficulty.

This batch of Five Cubes was constructed from a nicely figured plank of Leopardwood lumber. Approximately 54 copies are available. Five Cubes ships in the unsolved configuration.
