Daniel Weil, Renown Architect, on the World Chess Set Design
Daniel Weil, renown architect and designer, took on a mission to reinvent the chess pieces for World Chess. In the process, he redesigned the entire way chess feels and looks today, ranging from the chess pieces to stage design to lighting to furniture.
In this unique lecture, Weil breaks down the process of redesigning chess and explains the basis for each piece and reference. World Chess has partnered with Daniel since the outset, and his vision and respect for the game are visible in all events and products that World Chess brings to the market today.
