ABOUT
Skyline Chess

Skyline Chess is a London based company founded by two local designers, Ian Flood and Chris Prosser.

Born out of a love of architecture and chess, we re-imagine some of the world’s most iconic buildings as chess pieces and bring them to life on the chess board.

We currently have two cities in our range: London and New York. These are available in several different materials, our classic black and white acrylic sets, and our new metallic and luxury bronze editions.

Our vision is to produce other major cities around the world, allowing the different skylines to be pitted against each other on the chess board.

We are also delighted to also offer a bespoke chess set design service. We will work with you to craft your own personal set based on any design or idea of your choice.

OUR SKYLINES

London

In our London set Pawns are terraced houses, Big Ben is the Rook, with the London Eye playing the Knight. 30 St Mary Axe is cast as the Bishop, and the Shard lends its elegance and might to the role of the Queen. No other building than Canary Wharf would be better suited to play the King, and this piece stands at four and a half inches tall.VIEW MORE

New York

For our New York Edition we’ve chosen a range of buildings from across the city, some of which capture the essence of the early 1900’s construction boom and the growth of skyscraper architecture, through to their more contemporary counterparts, along with some of the city’s most recognisable silhouettes.VIEW MORE

Bespoke

We are also delighted to also offer a bespoke chess set design service for your own design or idea.

Our bespoke and corporate service is able to offer a range of different materials and customisation options, samples of which are available on request.VIEW MORE
