cubebot puzzle

  • the story

Wood 3000

Keeping a Transformer on your desk? Not cool. Keeping a Cubebot on your desk? Completely acceptable and awesome.

A far cry from the normal plastic and battery-powered robot army in the market today, this unsuspecting hardwood cube unfolds via elastic-bands into a mighty, menacing, and, oddly enough, slightly wholesome robot, like one who might live in a Lincoln Log cabin while not attacking cities. Sturdy limbs made from sustainably harvested cherry wood and strong elastic bands make him easy to pose and impervious to breakage. Play all day and quickly fold into a perfect cube when you hear the boss coming.

Designed by David Weeks and inspired by Japanese Shinto Kumi-ki puzzles. Made in China.

  • the maker

David Weeks

David Weeks graduated from Rhode Island School of Design and relocated to New York City with the goal of breaking into the art world as a painter. He started working as an apprentice in Ted Muehling's store. While working under Muehling, Weeks' interest shifted from art to design.

Employing his sculpture background, Weeks developed a line of lights processing both the clean perfection of machine-made products and the creative freedom of one-of-a-kind objects. Soon, David Weeks Studio was established and headquartered in Brooklyn.

David Weeks Studio now designs furniture, as well as clever and functional household objects. Fluid, seductive forms and balanced movements inform the many products designed by Weeks. Whether it's architectural lighting, tabletop products or children's toys, one constant has remained: Weeks is resolutely committed to peerless craftsmanship and democratic design.

      It was a present for my son so that he can use it to de-stress. I thought it would remind him of when he was young and played with blocks. I think it is a great item.

          Great, fun product. Bought this for my husband and he LOVED it. Couldn't wait to take it to work and show it off. Who wouldn't love a transforming robot though right?

          Great quality too!

            My husbands birthday is today. He just turned 29 so I bought him 29 gifts. Mr.Cubebot is definitely in the top five among vintage record player, cigars and a make-your-own whiskey kit!!! Great gift!

                    We have several wooden puzzles readily accessible to engage and entertain our teen and his friends! Cubebot has taken on many amusing poses and challenged just about everyone in the quest to return it to its original cube position!
