Lantern Puzzle / Product Design

Lantern Puzzle
Lantern Puzzle

The product is a puzzle toy as well as a light. The idea comes from the lantern riddle of Chinese culture. With the guessing concept, I combine the lantern riddle with puzzle game to form a versatile toy. Extending the single rule of traditional puzzle, I integrate the 2D and 3D assembly concept. There are 2 different ways to play this toy, which includes using each piece to play the 2D puzzle and slotting pieces into a 3D model. From the playing experience, children can explore the 2D and 3D spatial relationship. As one of pieces is installed with LED light inside, the 3D model will become a light just as the same function as the lantern.
