Reimagine the way you play chess with the New York Skyline Chess Set. London designers Ian Flood and Chris Prossner have reimagined the chess set by taking the classic game pieces and replacing them with miniature renditions of famous New York buildings. A range of buildings from across the city, some of which capture the essence of the early 1900’s construction boom and the growth of skyscraper architecture, through to their more contemporary counterparts, along with some of the city’s most recognizable silhouettes make up the set. Freedom Tower is the King with the Empire State Building as it’s queen. The Flatiron Building portrays the Knight, with the Guggenheim as the Rook. A row of Brownstone houses stand as the pawns. The 32-piece set is cast in injection moulded acrylic. Each piece is double weighted and has a soft felt base. Finished in classic black and white, this stunning set is the perfect creation for someone looking for a unique piece of British design. Each set comes complete with a 16” x 16” folding board and presentation box.
