C’est la Vie

C’est la Vie Based partly on the Euclidean construction of a hexagon, the C’est La Vie presents a visually interesting challenge. The objective is to remove the ring by navigating it through the maze of slots in the various wood pieces. Made in laser-cut wood and stainless steel by Jean-Claude Constantin. Jean-Claude Constantin lives in Germany, where he designs and manufactures many different wood and metal puzzles, as well as magic tricks.

More importantly, solving puzzles is great work for the brain and can have therapeutic benefits.
