About Ernő Rubik
In 1974, while a young professor of architecture in Budapest, Hungary, Mr. Rubik created an innovative solid cube that twisted and turned but did not break or fall apart. The first model was used to help him explain spatial relationships to his students. With colorful stickers on its sides, the cube got scrambled and thus emerged as the first "Rubik's Cube." It took well over a month for Mr. Rubik to work out the solution to his puzzle. Designed primarily as a mobile sculpture symbolizing the stark contrasts of the human condition—bewildering problems and triumphant intelligence, simplicity and complexity, stability and dynamism, order and chaos—it ended up becoming the world's best-selling toy ever.
