Get Lost in the Endlessly Marbled Patterns of Nervous System’s New Psychedelic Puzzles

Trippy zigzagged patterns grace a new set of infinity puzzles from Nervous System (previously). Part of the Catskills-based studio’s growing line of endlessly tiling designs, this series pieces together rippled lines and spirals produced through a digital simulation of paper marbling by engineer Amanda Ghassaei. There are three sizes, the largest of which is composed of more than 350 laser-cut pieces, and different iterations in warm and cool tones. As with all of Nervous System’s jigsaws, these designs embed a range of whimsy pieces, this time depicting the silhouettes of flora and fauna.

Shop the new collection on the studio’s site, and check out the video below to see the psychedelic tiling experience in action.

This brief educational film takes us into a paper marbling studio from the 1970s where centuries-old techniques are used to create elaborate marble-like designs on paper. The video was produced by the Bedfordshire County Council and posted online by the Bedfordshire and Luton Archives. (via Laughing Squid)
