The secret box SILVER CITY
To create the Silver City, NKD Puzzle, has been inspired from NOGEGONthe 3rd and last opus of the trilogy "Hollow Earths" by François and Luc Schuiten.
The latter, designer and architect, is known for his innovative designs of futuristic cities.
The story takes you to a distant imaginary world populated by inhabitants obsessed by a symmetrical law, living in a city with intangible rules.
In this very architectural representation where balance and harmony, identifiable with a perfect opposition, each face is the mirror of the other. A very confusing similarity that loses you in a strictly geometric graphic universe, neither right side, nor reverse side, simply a palindromic deciphering.
All the pieces of the Silver City puzzle box to be assembled are quadruples, the same goes for the mechanisms to be assembled, since symmetry is also reflected in the solution of the puzzle.
To build the Silver City you will need a lot of concentration, patience and attention to detail.
Adventurers, DIY (Do It Yourself) lovers, construction game enthusiasts, this game is for you.
Here it is not a very difficult box to solve once built. Its solution is elegant and pleasant.
The box is in the form of DIY kit. Everything is provided in the kit, even the glue and wax to lubricate the mechanisms. The explanatory booklet is as well done as a Lego box manual, which is quite something. A small stand is even provided with it to show it off.
This secret box is one of the frist creation of NKD PuzzleThis French company uses for its manufacturing French wood and everything is made in the south of France by a team of enthusiasts.
