This special edition Dubai set was created as part of a showcase of European designers for Downtown Dubai Design Week 2018.
With the nickname of the ‘City of Gold’, the gold and silver plated pieces of this set depict the city beautifully. 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 Burj al Arab steps 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.
HIGHEST QUALITY MATERIALS
