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.

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.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Cubebot Puzzle:

      Every time I come home from work, I find CubeBot in a new position and I usually laugh out loud. I bought it for my husband and we both get a real kick out of it. I'm sure it's normally used by children, but the beauty of this product is that it really is what you make of it. Versatile and fun to play with.

          Bought this as a gift for my best guy friend. Thought he could sit at his desk at the lab (he's an engineer), but it ended up staying in his apartment. We have fun putting him in different positions. He's very solid and well-made. We love Cubebot! He's a cheerful little friend to have around. :)
