It could be argued that chess isn't necessarily the most popular pastime amongst younger consumers, so the conceptual Drama Chess Set looks to change that by making it more applicable.

Boasting a polygonal design aesthetic that's modern and playful, the chess set looks to make Chinese Chess more popular amongst youth to keep the pastime alive rather than fading into obscurity. The set does aways with the traditional checkerboard design in favor of engraved crosses that enable the pieces to be positioned in for a more sturdy experience.

The Drama Chess Set is the design work of Lingfang Shen and is the winner of the A' Design Award for 2018 thanks to the premium aesthetic that it puts in focus.
