Who among us, at least once in their life, hasn’t tried their hand at solving one of the funniest and at the same time most exhausting puzzles ever invented: the jigsaw puzzle.
In these months of lockdown, we have all been severely tested, time at home, both alone and in company, never seems to pass, endless hours looking for something to do. It is precisely in the grip of this research that Studio Creta of Pordenone had the idea of dusting off this game, creating Mejo, a collection of puzzles inspired by dreamlike and surrealistic architectures.
During the months of the lockdown… we became passionate about the art of the puzzle. From Monet’s paintings to landscapes, we spent whole days putting tiles together.

The Architetture Imagine series consists of three puzzles of 500 pieces each: Arrival, Leisure and Dream, each with a different level of difficulty.
The puzzles are hand-numbered limited edition products, 100% handcrafted, the result of collaboration with various Italian suppliers and artists. The union of design and refinement in the graphics mean that Mejo’s puzzles are not a mere pastime, but constitute a real piece of furniture. With each joint it seems to dive into the fleeting settings of De Chirico, into reality made up of irrationality and dreams of Dalì, into the movement of vibrant colors by Matisse.
Mejo pays homage to these great artists by giving us the rediscovery of the value of time, the reappropriation of moments dedicated to training patience as a virtue, and why not, to self-knowledge: facing a problem head on, even as small as the resolution of a puzzle, very often leads to the revelation of some silent but significant aspects of our character.
A path of inner growth that enhances free time, spent alone or in company.
At Mejo we understand free time as a moment of play for the spirit, aimed at relaxation and company. We create pastimes that enhance being together, composing slowly and the pleasure of traveling with the imagination.
