Albert Einstein once famously said, "Combinatory play seems to be the essential feature in productive thought." If Einstein would be among us today, he would certainly love the ingenious play value of Cubicus, a smart reconfigurable desktop play-art "toy" for young and old. Cubicus was designed by Swiss designer Peer Clahsen in 1968 for Naef Toys in Switzerland.
Cubicus is perfection redefined: every little block is perfectly proportioned and the color combinations would make Josef Albers smile. This is undeniably one of the most significant play objects of 20th century modern design. Cubicus was prominently featured in the design store of the Museum of Modern Art in New York for many years, and it remains of the most beautiful wooden design toys ever made.
