Modular Chess Pieces by Neora Zigler

There are plenty creative chess sets developed recently. Today we want to show you another creative example. Developed by Israeli industrial designer Neora Zigler “Chess for the mass” proposes “an alternative solution for existing chess game pieces by implementing current methods for plastic injection manufacturing, while still preserving traditional identification symbols. Prior to modern ages, chess characters were produced using wood turning technologies, which had a direct influence on the shape and form of the pieces. Today they are manufactured mostly by plastic injection molding, yet they still maintain the traditional shapes relevant to wood turning. the “Chess for the mass” components are shaped in a shell-like form fitting the production process, allowing for stackability and compact packaging.” Take a look!
