A Colorful Chess Set That Can Be Employed In Multiple Techniques
XYZ Integrated Architecture, who are also the creators of the 60 Red Chair, have produced Chess Collection – four chess sets that can be set on the floor, on the table, or played vertically.
Not like common chess sets, the chess board doubles as a tray. Making use of numerous colorful fruits, eggs, or any other item of a comparable shape, one particular can generate an unusual and distinct pattern on the chessboard.
The chess pieces themselves have been stripped down and “simplified to the utmost”. Mainly conical, it personally reminds me a bit of a gnome’s hat. Most of them bear some resemblance to the classic chess pieces, whereas the king and queen have exaggerated sexual qualities. The pieces come in a gradient of red and grey, which represents the contrast amongst cold and warm.
