Raw Studio Chess Set

Dec 4, 2019

London-based designer Nick Rawcliffe has a knack for reimagining some of our favorite products, using innovative materials and build processes. Through his Raw Studio, he’s dropped yet another gem in this portable chess set.

The set includes thirty two ring-shaped pieces made from heat treated, oxidized and hand-polished stainless steel, designed to easily stack together like a cylindrical puzzle. The board itself is crafted from hand cut and sewn leather that creates a precise geometric pattern, representing black and white squares through the tactile contrast of the suede and skin side of the Italian leather hide. When you’re all done playing, simply roll the board up, and stack the rings to keep things secure. The board measures in at 16″x16″ when laid flat, and 24x6x10cm when packed away, and is made in England. [Purchase]
