1000 Colors Puzzle

Just when you though jigsaw puzzles couldn’t get anymore insane, this 1,000-piece creation pops up. What sets it apart from the others is that “Colours” contains 1,000 different colors arranged in the form of a CMYK gamut. Despite how it looks, Clemens Habicht, the creator, insists it’s easier to complete than traditional image-based puzzles, as when faced with a field of color, placement of every piece reportedly becomes almost intuitive.

Habicht adds: “The idea came from enjoying the subtle differences in the blue of a sky in a particularly brutal jigsaw puzzle, I found that without the presence of image detail to help locate a piece I was relying only on an intuitive sense of colour, and this was much more satisfying to do than the areas with image details.

What is strange is that unlike ordinary puzzles where you are in effect redrawing a specific picture from a reference you have a sense of where every piece belongs compared to every other piece. There is a real logic in the doing that is weirdly soothing, therapeutic, it must be the German coming out in me. As each piece clicks perfectly into place, just so, it’s a little win, like a little pat on the back.” Prouct page.
