Building blocks: architecture studio Planbureau launches new concrete puzzle
From Hungarian architecture studio Planbureau comes one of the hardest puzzles in the world – quite literally.
’Logiplaces’, brought to us from the makers behind ’Logifaces’, is a new 16-to-36-piece puzzle entirely made of concrete. Described as a ‘one-of-a-kind tabletop sculpture’, the hope for the puzzle is to give the owner a unique perspective of their surroundings. It’s not just a sophisticated, ornamental conversation piece however – the puzzle has also been designed as a tool to allow the owner to take a moment out of their hectic daily lives.
The unique concept for the new puzzle was thought up by Planbureau with the fundamental long-term objective of creating a product that ‘enables you to take home a piece of memory you made at any place in the world’. The creation of ’Logiplaces’ was inspired by the success of the studio’s previous concrete puzzle ’Logifaces’, which launched in 2014 as a gaming product for those with a passion for modern design.
Planbureau first adopted the use of 3D printing production techniques after winning a ‘What-to-print-in-3D’ design competition – and it is this use of 3D printing that has allowed it to develop ’Logiplaces’. The firm claims that the puzzle will one day have the ability to be completely custom-made to any topographical specification and will be able to be ordered to reflect anywhere in the world – such as ‘someone’s hometown or a company’s headquarters’.
Although funds are being raised piece by piece with an Indiegogo campaign, we doubt it’ll be long before everyone is seeking their very own ’Logiplaces’ puzzle.
