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!

In this New York edition, The Big Apple is immortalised in this game of greats, capturing the essence of the early 1900’s construction boom and the growth of skyscraper architecture across New York’s skyline. Contemporary counterparts appear in this edition alongside some of the city’s most recognisable silhouettes; The Guggenheim is the rook, the Flatiron Building is the knight, The Chrysler Building makes for an incredibly powerful bishop, whilst the undeniable grandeur of the Empire State Building makes for the perfect queen and the poignant, impeccable design of One World Trade Tower is the only choice for king in this set.
