Arena Concrete Chess Set

Material Immaterial Studio has created a spectacular concrete chess set inspired by the architecture of Roman amphitheaters, where spectators would gather to watch the clash between the gladiators. The unique set is also inspired by the brutalist architecture, and features chessmen that wear concrete armours each representing their position in the army.  What is particularly fascinating apart from the game, is the play of shadows that unveils itself on the stands and the armors of the chessmen with changing daylight.
