Skyline Chess introduces the New York City edition: an original and beautifully designed representation of the iconic landmarks of New York's skyline.
Perfect for both lovers of design and chess, our set makes a fantastic gift for any occasion!
Taking inspiration from New York’s world-renowned architecture and transforming it into carefully crafted and beautifully detailed chess pieces.
Featured in this set are some of the Big Apple’s most iconic buildings, with One World Trade Centre as the King and the Empire State Building as the Queen. Capturing the essence of the early 1900’s construction boom and growth of high rise in the city, the Chrysler building and the Flatiron building play the Bishop and Knight respectively. The spiralling, sculptural form of the Guggenheim museum plays the Rook and iconic brownstone houses typical of the lower East side are cast as the pawns.
Want to give your set a stylish twist? You can add on of our hand printed chess board, finished in birch or Italian marble.
Each of the weighted pieces is made using injection moulded high-grade acrylic, picking up the finer architectural details of each building. The pieces have soft felt bases and come arranged in a presentation box.
This set comes with our entry level folded cardboard playing surface.
