Three Cubes by Kohno Ichiro is an award-winning design placed in the top 10 2018 IPP Design Competition results. This pocket-sized puzzle is a ton of fun and remains a favorite. With only three identical pieces, this seemingly simple assembly puzzle may keep you busy for longer than you expect. The goal is to combine the pieces to create a stable assembly forming three distinct, equal-sized cubes. Complicating this task is the polarity of the powerful magnets embedded into pieces.
Our work is handcrafted to very precise tolerances and must be kept within the range of 40-60% relative humidity at all times. Failure to do so may cause inoperability or permanent damage.
Eric's work is flawless. Thanks for another great puzzle!
I love Eric's boxes and complex puzzles, but sometimes it's nice to enjoy the elegance and simplicity of a solidly built put-together like this. Magnets make for good fiddling and (bounded) exploration. Recommend the whole series of Cubes - plenty of the unexpected to be found. In fact, my 6 year old son took 3 Cubes and 4 Cubes and within a few minutes had found a stable (but not completely magnetically-joined) 4x4x4 voxel cube to be made out of the combined pieces. Can you find it?
It is sublimely satisfying when this puzzle clicks into its solved form. As always, wonderful craftsmanship makes this a little work of art.
