When art imitates life; Daniel Libeskind‘s championship-size chess set is an ode to the cityscapes of Milan and New York and some of Libeskind’s most iconic buildings. With mixed materials such as concrete, marble, silver and Swarovski crystal, this playful piece is meant for interaction and conversation.
An ode to the urban landscape, the chessboard from Architecture & the City explores the cityscapes of Milan, New York and chess-piece miniatures of the designer's most lauded buildings. The set uses materials from the worlds of construction – concrete and marble – as well as luxury: silver from Wiener Silber Manufactur and crystal from Swarovski.
