MicroPlanter Chess Set

XYZ Workshop's design for a micro-planter chess set¬†was announced as the 1st place¬†winner of the My Mini Factory Chess and Pen Design Competition. The Micro Planter Chess Set is loosely based on a Bauhaus Style Chess set. We were interested in blending the simple strong geometric forms of the chess pieces with nature. The chess pieces allows nature lovers to integrate their favorite succulents or herbs into their game play. Each Chess piece can be planted with specific herbs or succulents to give them a level of individuality and personality. This also allows the player to assign unique textures, colors and smell to the pieces. Use some Corsican Mint to bring some minty freshness into you game, or perhaps a series of hard wearing cacti if you don't have a green thumb. We have also included a printable/portable chess board skin, measuring only 0.6mm thick. Printing four of these allows the player to turn any flat surface into their chessboard. Make this Green Chess set a feature in your garden, or bring the garden into your living room.
