A Magnetic Kaleidoscopic Puzzle Toy from Upcycled Barcelona Skateboards - An Object developed under the criteria of the post industrial design project ldo, with material support from RUFUS Skate Shop and technological guidance from FabLab Barcelona IaaC (Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia).

This puzzle is created from a single cut matrix with a 16-piece pattern. The cut matrix is repeated on 16 skateboards (of diferent origin countries) which are combined to create 16 sets of puzzles with a unique and unrepeatable combination of graphics
. Each piece of the set is marked by Laser with its origin code. The pieces have magnets on the sides which facilitate the final assembly of the puzzle as well as experimental combinations.

This object-toy is part of the project in progress
who addresses the collective memory of contemporary material culture from an experimental process through the collection and classification of more than 600 skateboards used in the context of the contemporary art museum MACBA, specifically in La Plaça dels Àngels between 2008 and 2017.

The many brands of this collection and their place of origin, highlight the link between the production and marketing areas of the sport in several countries. The following list shows some of the recognized companies that have rolled in this mythical place in Barcelona:
