Add a designer twist to your favourite board game with the Umbra Buddy Chess Set! With a wonderfully playful presentation, the Umbra Buddy Chess Set is a visual delight which is sure to set your guests’ tongues wagging!
This stunning chess set with a hidden storage compartment is based on Umbra’s Buddy range of characterful stick men, who have previously taken the form of coat hooks and bottle openers. Here, the playful Buddies take on the personas of the individual game pieces with easily recognisable headwear, for example the Buddy King is sporting a crown, naturally.
The sleek chess pieces have been finely crafted from cast zinc, and have been finished with fresh nickel and titanium, and velvet bottoms for easy movement. When not in play, the 32 pieces fit nicely into the smooth wooden box below. However the formation of Buddies creates such a visually pleasing display that you'll probably want to keep them on show - ready for your next opponent!
Unlike most games which are tidied away after use, this stylish chess set is intended to become part of your home décor. A playful yet functional twist on the traditional game, this stunning set makes an impressive gift for any keen chess player who appreciates great design.
So get your game face on, and immerse yourself in this designer chess set! Your move, Buddy!
