Nautilus Puzzle
The whorled shell of a Nautilus creates a challenging spiral puzzle from lasercut wood. The Spiral Puzzle is a new twist on the classic jigsaw puzzle where the edge coils into the center. Usually you start assembling a puzzle from the edge and work inwards. However, with a Spiral Puzzle the edge winds inside the puzzle, mixing the interior and the exterior.

ARTWORK
The puzzle features a photograph of a nautilus shell. Nautiluses are cephalopods related to octopi and squid. As it grows, the nautilus builds larger and larger chambers to live in, creating a spiraling shell. The chambers contain a mixture of gas and seawater. The nautilus regulates this mixture to control its buoyancy much like a submarine!

WHIMSY PIECES
The puzzle contains 5 cephalopod pieces and a seahorse for good measure.

  • Contains 307 maze-style pieces
  • Laser cut in Palenville, NY

made with math, science, + lasers
Our plywood puzzles combine the artistry of classic jigsaws with the possibilities of new technology. We use custom software inspired by natural patterns to grow the intertwining shapes of the puzzle pieces. The organic forms are cut from plywood by a laser, resulting in a uniquely challenging puzzle crafted from premium materials.
