Most of the time, when you work on a jigsaw puzzle, there’s a definite ending. With all of the edges matched, you place that final piece and get the sweet satisfaction of knowing you’re finally done. Design studio Nervous System has strayed from convention with their mind-bending Infinity Puzzle. Adorned with a photograph of the Milky Way, it’s as free-flowing as the universe it’s inspired by. There is no beginning and no end, and the continuously-tiling jigsaw can be assembled in thousands of different ways. And just when you thought you had one side to worry about, Nervous System has designed it so that you can use either side of the jigsaw pieces in your construction. Are you up for the challenge?
- The Infinity Puzzle contains 133 pieces made out of birch plywood.
- Three of the 133 pieces are an astronaut, space shuttle and satellite.
- The puzzle dimensions vary, but it is 8" x 8" at its smallest configuration.
