History in the form of a game of strategy. Designed by Boym Partners Inc., NY designers, The History Chess Set is a limited edition (only 8 made), hand carved, 32 piece set. Each piece represents a historic event or icon from the 20th century. The Panton Chair, The Titanic, VW Beetle, Coke bottle, Space Shuttle, The Mac Classic Computer and The Twin Towers are just a sampling of the sculptures represented in the 4′ x 4′ set.
From the Boym website…”The history of the last century has often been compared to a chess game. A tournament of opposing political systems, ideologies, brands and artistic movements”
