The vision of two architects whose passion for architecture took them on a design journey, this beautiful chess set showcases the best of the architecture from the World’s favourite cities. Designed to create an intriguing gift for a chess lover and unique objects for your home, each individual piece is hand-cast in resin. The set is available in monochrome (black and white board and pieces) or premium metal where a metal powder has been added to the resin and then hand polished giving a pewter effect and lovely weight to the pieces. Play by the fireside and brush up on your tactical moves and knowledge of some of the most famous buildings in the world!

This London edition is an ode to the modern masterpieces within the city. Terraced houses play the perfect pawns, Big Ben makes for a regal rook, the London Eye is cast as the knight, 30 St Mary Axe steps into the role of the bishop perfectly, whilst the Shard lends its elegance and might to the role of the queen. When it comes to the Big Smoke, the stature and significance of Canary Wharf is the only building that can take on the role for king, and this piece stands at four and a half inches tall.

Each set comes complete with 32 pieces, double weighted with a soft felt base and a choice of checkered folding card board, hand-screenprinted wooden (with a map of the city) or marble board and presentation box.
