CHESS | Paul Krueger


In the short term project nesting, I developed a chess game, which can be be made from two 150x200mm plates. Different colored Material is being used to distinguish the players. The outstanding fact about this game is, that 100% of the material is being used and nothing goes to waste. The organically shaped figures, are on one side referencing classic chess figures while also perfectly integrating in the nesting. In the process my goal was to stay close to the original shapes of chess figures, while making little changes to them, that would make them ideal for nesting.

The chessboard is also integrated in the nesting. The oddly shaped stones that emerge from that can be arranged individually. Resulting from this intentional gaps occur, which distinguish it from a traditional chess game and reference its production.
