CO-Design: Kagen Schaefer

Kagen Schaefer is the world's best secret puzzle box maker. A bold statement, but a true one. Kagen designs and builds limited edition wooden puzzle boxes (and now books) that are truly a sight to behold. Not only are his pieces amazing due to the high level of craftsmanship involved, but also for the complex system of mechanics hidden within each puzzle. In fact, some of Kagen's pieces require hundreds of moves before being opened.

At CO-Design Kagen exhibited his new Puzzle Book, along with one of my favorite pieces, the Pattern Box. Stay tuned for an upcoming podcast with Kagen where we'll tour his secret workshop!
