Entry Description

Infinite cube is designed as a stress toy with playful floral patterns on each face which consist of colorful electronic elements. UV printed moire pattern on acrylic cubes to create interesting visual effects when it folds. While designing a stress toy, I noticed how people usually alleviate stress almost unconsciously by making repeated and continuous motion or gesture like rotating pen, knocking table and shaking leg. I hope that users would feel relaxed by both fun visual effect and infinitely folding process.
