This 1000-Piece CMYK Colour Gamut Is the Most Colourful Jigsaw Puzzle Ever


These days you would think that pretty much everything you could possibly create with a jigsaw puzzle had already been done, then along comes artist and designer Clemens Habicht and does something we've never seen before, he uses colours instead of shapes or an image to create a 1,000 piece puzzle.

The colours follow a CMYK colour gamut which is one method printers use to achieve their colours. You might think that because some of these colours are hard to separate and there is no overall image to work towards that this would make the puzzle harder but Habicht insists it is actually a lot easier than a conventional jigsaw puzzle:

Unlike ordinary puzzles where you are in effect redrawing a specific picture from a reference, you have a sense of where ever piece belongs compared to ever other piece. There is a real logic in the doing that is weirdly soothing, therapeutic.”
