Brooklyn-based product design studio Craighill has always impressed with their unique offerings, attention to detail and high-end construction. As much as we love their bracelets, knives, key rings and other EDC goods, it’s their unconventional desktop puzzles that have always intrigued us most. Craighill’s Venn Puzzle and Jack Puzzle are both great options if you’re looking for a way to kill a little time between conference calls, meetings, presentation and, well, actual work, but we’re more excited about the new Tycho Puzzle that they just launched on Kickstarter. Unlike their previous mechanical puzzles, the Tycho puzzle is built with a combination of eight total pieces, four pieces each made from stainless steel and brass, so it has a unique two-tone exterior. In addition to that, the final cube form hides a tiny interior cavity you can use for storage and the 1.8″ cube has an assembled weight of a hefty 1.5lbs. It’s safe to say this is one desktop toy and/or paperweight you’ll never grow tired of.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
