Chess board game
Chess board game made out of secondary aluminium (chess pieces) and glossy polycarbonate plastic.


The pieces of the chess board game, are easy to produce from secondary aluminium because, the material can be laminated into aluminium sheets 0.25-.4mm thickness and than rolled into cones. Having the same starting shape for all the 16 pieces - a cone - than the individuals pieces are laser cut to make one king, one queen, two rooks, two knights, two bishops, and eight pawns for each set.

What makes your product bold and innovative?

Everybody enjoys a chess game from time to time .. and I believe this product is a fun, innovative and classy one. My design is bold because I created some unusual shapes for the pieces. But if you think that they all relate from a starting shape of a cone, than you may find my design innovative !
