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.

Got this for my sister as a gift. We used to do a lot of1000 piece puzzles during summers between school and recently got back into them. The quality is great, and the colors are beautiful! It was the perfect difficulty; somewhat challenging but not enough to get frustrated (assuming no one is colorblind)

      Comments about UncommonGoods 1000 Colors Puzzle:

      I thought this puzzle would be more difficult than it was. My thought was that with each piece being a different color it would be hard to put together. But for me, each piece being a different color made it easy. I thought I would have days into a puzzle not 6 hours. But, it was fun and I will put it together and take it apart many times.

                I peeked inside the box and I love that every single piece is just a slightly different shade of a solid color. I think she is going to love the challenge of this puzzle!
