Puzzles by Designer > Akio Yamamoto


Described as a Master Metal Smith, Akio Yamamoto lives in Japan.

Akio Yamamoto has said that he designed these 'organic shape' puzzles by sketching plant shapes, especially the growth of roots, and that he started the design work not from its static shape, but from 'natural' motions of its components.  He says that one of the design processes was sketching a cup of coffee and milk mixed together and that although this strategy is still tentative he will try to design puzzles not only their figure, but also the process by which they form.

Seen here when he first presented the Radix puzzle at IPP25 in Helsinki, Finland in 2005.
