The classic Rubik’s Cube is all grown up, with a decidedly modern twist. The Skewb Ultimate is a 12-sided, 12-color spatial challenge created by designer Tony Durham. It’s based on a similar concept to the classic puzzle—twist the sides to mix up the shades, and then solve by getting one solid color to take up every side—but this version rotates in all directions. It’s got another purpose when it’s not in use, too: In Pucci-esque hues instead of the standard primary colors, it doubles as a pretty conversation piece for a nightstand, bookshelf, or coffee table.
