Nur 8 (Only 8)

Nur 8 (Only 8) 8 wooden pegs are arranged in a wooden maze. The objective of this sequential movement puzzle is to mix up the order of the pieces then return them back into numerical order. This is done by sliding the pegs into the groves and moving the wooden slider. Made in laser-cut wood and stainless steel by Jean-Claude Constantin.

The simplicity of jigsaw puzzles is deceptive. While the concept is very straightforward – find the pieces and fix them together – there is a surprising level of mental activity required to carry out the steps needed to complete a puzzle. Psychological studies have identified a number of thought processes that are required to undertake what is in fact a complex process of identifying shapes and images and relating them to an overall pattern. More importantly, solving jigsaw puzzles is a great work out for the brain and can actually have therapeutic benefits.
