The traditional Staunton Chess set was designed by architect Nathaniel Cooke who took details from a number of different chess sets, however more interestingly took inspiration from classical architecture details which he saw in the city around him.
With this in mind, we thought it only fitting that we added a Staunton design into the Skyline collection, with our own contemporary aesthetic and materiality applied.
Selected to create beautiful and unique objects for both the chess player and design enthusiast alike. Each individual piece is cast in solid steel and then hand painted, all in all giving a timeless weight to the pieces and a unique contemporary aesthetic.
As with all of our sets the Staunton Edition comes in high quality presentation packaging, perfect for both gifting and storing the set between games.
Each set comes complete with a hand screen-printed wooden map or Carrara Marble playing board.
