World Chess Championship Set (Walnut Edition)
he iconic official World Chess Championship set approved by FIDE for the elite events and exclusively used in the World Chess Championship matches and cycle events. The board in this set is made of walnut.
The set has been designed by Pentagram’s Daniel Weil for World Chess and since then it became one of the most iconic chess designs in the world.
Inspired by the classic Staunton shape, the set has been designed with the help of Vladimir Kramnik and Magnus Carlsen — they commented on details that only chess professionals can sense — such as a grip of the piece for use in blitz games.
The chess pieces are handmade from boxwood. The set includes the official pieces and board.
