Over time, chess sets may have been updated in terms of looks, but the Chess for the Mass has focused purely on practicality. In place of classic full-bodied pieces, this chess set boast hollowed ones that allow them to be conveniently stacked. Not only does this offer obvious functionality, it also allows for a contemporary means of production, namely plastic injection molding.

Conceived by Neora Zigler, a designer based in Israel, the Chess for the Mass took inspiration from other stacking objects. For instance, the knight was modeled after a plastic chair while the bishop reminded the designer of a disposable spoon. Focused on making pieces that, according to her, were "simple but not minimalist and not abstract," the Chess for the Mass are what ever chess lover needs.
