Ji Lee, Creative Director at Google and designer of the “Bubble Project” (amongst many other things) has re-imagined the chess board. Lee’s version transforms the flat, everyday surface into a three-dimensional battleground that creatively showcases the play taking place.
“The three-dimensional chess board adds an extra dimension of physicality to the game’s battle field” says Lee. The King looks less obtainable, now that he is set on his shared pedestal with his wife.
I love this design. Cool!
