Rubik’s Cube breaks Guinness World Record

Record for most individual contributors to a Rubik’s Cube Mosaic broken as part of pop-up experience.

The Rubik’s brand has broken the Guinness World Record for the most individual contributors to a Rubik’s Cube Mosaic.

The record was completed as part of a Rubik’s Cube pop-up immersive experience which took place last week.

The previous record of 293 participants was broken on October 2 with 308 individual contributors. In order for the Guinness World Records attempt to be beaten, a team of talented speedcubers, including UK world champion George Scholey and London-based magician, Taran Harvey-Chadwick, were on hand to teach participants how to solve Rubik’s Cubes.

The completed mosaic of HRH Prince Harry is made with 1,575 Rubik’s Cubes and measures 2.56 metres wide x 2.05 metres high.

It will now be donated to the Teapot Trust, a Scottish charity which provides a UK-wide programme of art therapy in hospitals to support the wellbeing of children with chronic conditions and their families. The artwork will be put on public display.

“The Rubik’s Cube immersive pop-up experience was a massive success and it was fantastic to see so many enthusiastic individuals combine to create such a phenomenal achievement as breaking a Guinness World Record,” said Christoph Bettin, ceo of Rubik’s Brand. “We can’t wait for 2020 when we have so many exciting new initiatives to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Rubik’s Cube taking the world by storm.”
