An ode to the modern masterpieces within the city. Terraced houses play the perfect pawns, Big Ben makes for a regal rook, the London Eye is cast as the knight, 30 St Mary Axe steps into the role of the bishop perfectly, whilst the Shard lends its elegance and might to the role of the queen. When it comes to the Big Smoke, the stature and significance of Canary Wharf is the only building that can take on the role for king, and this piece stands at four and a half inches tall.
Selected to create beautiful and unique objects for both the chess player and design enthusiast alike. Each individual piece is hand-cast in Stainless Steel, all in all giving a timeless weight to the pieces and a unique architectural aesthetic.
Each set comes complete with a hand screen-printed wooden map or Italian Carrara Marble playing board and presentation box.
Available in a range of different edits: the Acrylic Edition, the New York City vs London Special Edition, the Stainless Steel Edition and the Luxury Bronze Edition, pitting the Big Smoke against another of the architectural greats in our collection.
