Iconic buildings are cleverly reimagined as pieces of a chess set, collectively creating the highly recognisable city skylines of New York City and London. For chess players and design enthusiasts, each set is finished in classic black and white, complete with folding board and presentation box.
In the New York set the Pawns are Brownstone Houses, The Guggenheim is The Rook, with the Flatiron Building playing the Knight. The Chrysler is cast as the Bishop, and the Empire State Building plays the most powerful piece on the board, the Queen. The recently finished Freedom Tower plays the King.
Cast in injection-moulded acrylic
Each piece is double weighted and has a soft, felt base
