With the current state of 3D printing for the masses, a chess set is probably one of the best ways to experiment and design cool stuff. Designer David Chiesa did just that and took the liberty of turning the classic pieces into familiar buildings of modern-day Milano skyline.
During the six months of the EXPO in Milano, the designer is distributing the chess set in shops as a micro six pieces version, or as a full thirty-two pieces version. If you are into 3D printing yourself, you can download the full set for a small amount of money, and print it yourself. Then you’ll just have to build yourself a board.
