This special edition Dubai set was created as part of a showcase of European designers for Downtown Dubai Design Week 2018.
The show-stopping buildings are aptly striking for such a decadent game; Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum's House plays the pawn, The Cayan Tower makes for an incredibly elegant rook, the Jumeirah Emirates Towers step in as knight, the Rose Rotana is a beautiful bishop and the Princess Tower makes for a regal queen, with the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa’ s commanding stature being fitting for a king.
