A finalist at the Billes International Design completion in New Orleans, the “Celestial Chess Set” by Jerod Hugghins is a unique chess set that unlike usual chess sets is based on the geometry of the sphere. The chessboard presents an ideal spherical base from where the pieces rise to take part in the royal battle, creating an intriguing visual effect. Eliminating the flat squares and circles to mark the 64 spaces of the chessboard, the radical chessboard features a matrix of indentations to stick the pieces on an uneven terrain, giving a true feel of the battlefield where the pieces seem to hover over a spherical landscape like the true soldiers.
