Chess is one of the oldest games and it can be very challenging and entertaining. Every chess lover should have at least one great chess set. We’ve seen it all- wooden, magnetic, tiny, large, made from glass…but there’s one innovative and great looking Roll Up Chess Set you must check out.
Raw Studio creates awesome and unique products, and this one is probably the most innovative one. Usually, carrying a chess set around with you isn’t very practical because it can take a lot of space and can be quite heavy. Roll Up Chess Set is made so you can carry it around. It rolls up and fits inside a tube, together with the pieces. This way, you can take it pretty much anywhere with you.
Each of thirty-two pieces is heat-treated, oxidized, made of stainless steel and polished by hand. No chemicals were used while making it. The pieces are shaped like rings and they can stack and interlock together. This way, they create one long roll of chess pieces.
The board is made of hand-cut and sewn leather with precise geometric square patterns. The combination and contrast of suede and skin side Italian leather represent black and white squares. It’s a very original way to know which square belongs to what player.
Roll Up Chess Set is elegant, compact and perfectly portable chess set. It’s a bit pricey, but really innovative and cool looking. If you like this chess design, you should definitely check out other Raw Studio products. They have some great looking chairs and lights, even a smartphone stand. [via]
