Steve Vigar has designed a unique chess set. The topic of this handmade chess set is connected with the designer’s life-long love of architecture and fascination with classic building design.

Three cities are beautifully represented: San Francisco, Chicago, and New York. The pieces feature skylines and residential architectural styles crafted from exotic woods which are laser cut and then put together by hand

Pieces can be made in either light or dark woods, and clients often choose to pit different cities against each other.



The board of Steve Vigar chess set is made of zebra wood and whangee, and can include an optional drawer to store the pieces. Price: $2,100
