A captivating mechanical puzzle that activates the mind and roots you in the present moment. The Tycho Puzzle is difficult to solve, satisfying to hold, and beautiful to display. Comprised of eight pieces of brass and stainless steel, the Tycho Puzzle’s components fit together to form a cube with gently rounded edges. The puzzle is produced through a combination of die-casting and precision machining, which ensures a solid fit and a beautiful surface finish. The Tycho Puzzle also features a hidden interior cavity that’s a perfect place to conceal a meaningful surprise. Craighill sculpted the curves and profiles of each piece to be increasingly fluid, as if the two metals were woven together.The Tycho Puzzle is small but mighty, measuring 1.8 inches across and weighing almost 1.5lbs.
