Venn Puzzle - Carbon Black
Rated 4.8 out of 5
6 Reviews

$ 95

A beautiful mechanical puzzle comprising three identical pieces, die-cast in stainless steel and weighing almost 2 pounds. Until now the Venn Puzzle has only been available in stainless steel, but this limited release features our super-durable Carbon Black finish on a small number of units. 

Initially launched in September 2018, the Venn Puzzle is a surprisingly difficult dexterity challenge and an intriguing addition to your desk, shelf, or coffee table. The assembled puzzle creates a perfect sphere — so each piece makes up one-third of the sphere by volume.

While simple in concept, reassembling these three surprisingly heavy pieces of stainless steel is deceptively complicated. Once you've mastered it, the visual and tactile appeal hold fast long after the initial challenge has been vanquished. These pieces are cast from molten stainless steel in a ‘die’ or mold at temperatures over 2500°F.

Specifications:

  • 2.25" D (same as a pool ball)
  • Die-cast Stainless Steel with Carbon Black finish
  • Weighs 1 lb, 12 oz
  • Comes with a small brass display stand

Black is cool

Seems so simple, yet it took me 2 days to figure how to reassemble it and the weight adds to the enjoyment. I think the black version is so cool.

Carbon beauty but almost accidentally returned

I love the matte black of this Venn puzzle. When it arrived, though, I almost sent it back because the item wasn’t black — it looked more like something that was brass and had been spray painted black (poorly.) After playing with it for a bit I realized that the brass ring stand it came with had actually scuffed it up in transit, and the oils from my hands were slowly restoring the beautiful carbon finish. So if you order one and it arrives looking more like a wreck, don’t worry. Just rub it and let it sit a bit and the deep black will come back. I wish that they’d explained that in the packaging info, because I was so close to firing off an email and returning it, and would have missed out on this top notch piece of desk art.

The puzzle itself is terrific. If your significant other has ADHD and is getting on your nerves, let them play with it and you’ll get an entire afternoon all to yourself.
