Product Design: The ‘Qbist Bar’ Pays Tribute to the Haberdasher’s Puzzle

4 Jan
2011

The Qbist bar pays tribute to Henry E. Dudeney (1857-1930) an English puzzle and mathematical game devisor. He is known as one of the country’s foremost creators of puzzles.

Dudeney’s most famous innovations were his 1903 success at solving the Haberdasher’s Puzzle (Cut an equilateral triangle into four pieces that can be rearranged to make a square)…seen below.

The Qbist Bar by StudioArka is parallelepiped with a square base sectioned along very exact lines to form four elements which can open up to different shaped units, a cocktail bar or a piece with a highly original look evocative of playing with shapes.

The four trapezoidal elements that can be developed in different ways. It is made in Dupont Corian, interior in mirror-finish stainless steel fitted with shelves, a drawer, a tray, a pull-out cutting board an ice-bucket in mirror-finish stainless steel.

A bar that can fit anywhere!

The angular look and feel of the Qbist bar is great! Very clever and so functional. Thanks for sharing. – Christine from DuPont
