Born out of a love of architecture and chess, designers Ian Flood and Chris Prosser reimagine some of the world’s most iconic buildings as chess pieces and bring them to life on Skyline Chess sets. In the London set Pawns are terraced houses, Big Ben is the Rook, the London Eye plays the Knight, 30 St Mary Axe is cast as the Bishop, the Shard takes the role of the Queen, and Canary Wharf plays the King. Brownstones are Pawns, The Guggenheim is the Rook, the Flatiron Building plays the Knight, the Chrysler Building is cast as the Bishop, the Empire State Building plays the Queen, and the new Freedom Tower plays the King in the New York City set. Or start a game of international rivalry with the New York City vs London set, with London pieces in white and New York in black. Each piece is cast in injection moulded acrylic, double weighted, and has a soft felt base. These 32-piece sets will delight both chess and design enthusiasts.
