Chess is an intense battle of intelligence that requires great creativity, problem solving skills, foresight and risk assessment. As such, the game has become an iconic symbol of status and intellect. Mate by Sean Connell is a wall-hanging chessboard that symbolizes the creativity of the game. The board hangs vertically on the wall to provide a new and challenging perspective of the battle field. The design serves as a minimal piece of functional art that allows players to enjoy casual games without having a traditional board stealing table top space or collecting dust in the corner. Another advantage is that Mate fosters community or family involvement by allowing players and an audience to comfortably watch the game. Further, instructors can use the wall-hanging board to teach the game without forcing students to stand around a crowded table looking over someone’s shoulder.
Mate is perfect for chess enthusiasts, casual players or discerning individuals. You cansupport this project on Kickstarter.
