Meticulously cast using a blend of ancient and state-of-the art techniques, this luxurious chess board models New York’s most iconic landmarks in bronze.
THE BIG APPLE IN BRONZE
This superior chess set brings the architectural beauty of the Big Apple into play through a carefully curated line-up of protagonists modelled on the Chrysler, the Empire State Building, the Guggenheim and more, while iconic Brownstones play the pawns. Created in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, each of the 32 highly detailed chessmen is meticulously hand-cast in solid bronze using 3D printing and an ancient wax-casting technique.
An exceptional Corian board – screen-printed by hand with an intricate map of the city that never sleeps – provides the breath-taking battleground for your game. The set is perfected with a luxury presentation box to suitably mark the occasion.
Founded by two London-based architectural designers, Skyline was born of the then-flatmates’ hypothetical musings over games of chess about their ultimate architectural line-up. The finest materials and exquisite craftsmanship have made their dreams a reality, updating the time-honoured game for the 21st century with the utmost esteem.
