Design studio Nervous System conceived complex algorithm that generates geology-like geode slices. Geode, and their larger sibling Orbicular, look as if they’re sliced sections of colourful banded agate stones instead of puzzles made of a birch plywood. This new wave of puzzles was created using a new generative system called Maze for making the puzzle cuts in these distorted shapes. Each puzzle features a computer-generated image of an algorithmic geode that’s then cut into a maze-like pattern for you to solve. The pieces feature intertwining arms that make the puzzles more fun and more of a challenge to put together. Geode puzzles include about 180 pieces with four crystal-themed additions, while Orbicular puzzles contain approximately 360 pieces with five crystal-themed ones. A very fashionable piece of art.
