Dye Hard

Apologies, ROY G. BIV. Paris-based artist Clemens Habicht is aiming well beyond the shades of the rainbow with his aptly named 1000 Colors Puzzle. Perfect for the CMYK connoisseur, each of the thousand pigmented jigsaw pieces represents an individual hue. Players have to rely on an intuitive sense of color rather than image details to complete the chromatic challenge—a process Clemens calls "therapeutic." Whether players find it relaxing or stimulating, we can vouch for 1000 Colors' popularity—during its first run, design fiends scooped up every last puzzle within 72 hours. Made in China.

Clemens Habicht doesn’t fit the mold of the classic toy maker. Based in Paris, he heads an art gallery and directs music videos in addition to his work as a graphic designer and illustrator. Yet despite his amped-up work schedule, Habicht may be best known for creating a delightful leisure-time activity: 1000 Colors, a picture-less jigsaw puzzle that eschews imagery and features only shades on the CMYK color spectrum. During its first run, design fiends scooped up every last puzzle in 72 hours.
