186 kilos of pure gold to touch!

To touch, but not to take away: The largest gold cube in the world was forged in Switzerland. The brilliant work of art Niclas Castello (44) comes to Zurich for a day under high security measures.


The largest gold cube in the world: the work of art weighs 186 kilograms made of pure 24-carat gold.

You can’t carry it away, but you can touch it! The world’s largest gold cube, worth over 12 million Swiss francs, is coming to Zurich: the “Castello Cube” will be on the Rathausbrücke all day on Thursday, September 22nd. Until then, the artwork by Niclas Castello (44) will remain hidden in a secret place in the Swiss mountains.

Pure gold: The Castello Cube as part of the Venice Biennale.

For security reasons, the artist cannot say anything more specific about the whereabouts. He is delighted that the cube is being exhibited in Switzerland: “After all, it was born and manufactured here.” Converting 186 kilograms of pure 24k gold into a cubic shape was a challenge. The Rüetschi bell foundry in Aarau was able to do this thanks to its many years of know-how.
