Cubebot is a wooden retro robot toy that doesn’t need batteries. His powerful hardwood frame can hold many poses. His elastic band muscles and durable wood limbs make him ready for action. When it’s time for him to rest he folds into a perfect cube.
That’s when the puzzling starts! There is only one solution to how he can fold up and fit back inside his box.
Described by his designer David Weeks as a wooden puzzle with a playful personality.
David Weeks is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design. He took his inspiration for this design from Shinto Kumi-ki puzzles. “Kumi-ki” is a Japanese word that means “to assemble wood” or “put together wood”. Usually used in the puzzle world to mean interlocking wooden puzzles that when assembled form a familiar figure.
By joining ancient Japanese tradition with contemporary toy culture, Cubebot is David Weeks’ non-traditional take on the toy robot.
Made from: Sustainably harvested beech wood. Size: 90mm x 90mm x 90mm Robot is 242mm tall from head to toe.
