The Tycho Puzzle is an intriguing mental and physical challenge. It’s difficult to solve, satisfying to hold, and beautiful to display. Comprised of eight pieces of brass and stainless steel, the components fit together to form a cube with gently rounded edges. The Tycho Puzzle is small but mighty, measuring 1.8 inches across and weighing almost 1.5lbs. It comes packaged in a custom cork box, which echoes its dimensions and shape, and will protect it in transit. Once you’ve safely received your puzzle, the box is quite nice for storage, transport, and display. But it also stands on its own as a really handsome object. The Tycho Puzzle also features a hidden interior cavity that’s a perfect place to conceal a meaningful surprise. The solution to the puzzle might initially seem obvious, but upon closer inspection there are nuances, asymmetries, and interferences that prevent a simple stacked approach. In a time when our attention is increasingly divided, the experience of pure focus is all too rare. With the Tycho Puzzle, we’ve created a compelling object that activates the mind and roots you in the present moment.
