Chess Table (2023)
Made by Moooi
The Chess Table is a table for past time, rivalry and cleverness. The checked pattern of 64 blocks makes it suitable for playing a game of chess anytime.
The Chess Table was designed by Sofia Lagerkvist and Anna Lindgren, members of the Swedish design studio Front. Front’s design objects often communicate a story to the observer about the design process, about the material, or about conventions within the design field. Significant in their work is the partial assignment of the design process to animals, computers or machines. They worked on various projects such as a constantly changing interior, exploding objects, robotic furniture and a range of furniture inspired by their fascination with magic.
