chess for the mass by neora zigler
developed by neora zigler, an israeli industrial designer, ‘chess for the mass’ proposes an alternative solution for existing chess game
pieces by implementing current methods for plastic injection manufacturing, while still preserving traditional identification symbols.
prior to modern ages, chess characters were produced using wood turning technologies, which had a direct influence on the shape
and form of the pieces. today they are manufactured mostly by plastic injection molding, yet they still maintain the traditional shapes
relevant to wood turning. the ‘chess for the mass’ components are shaped in a shell-like form fitting the production process,
allowing for stackability and compact packaging.
