Capture Chess Set - Interesting Industrial Design Video
We found this very interesting chess set video. The set, which the designer calls 'Capture' comprises simple aluminum-milled pieces. The pieces are designed to stack on top of one another. The idea is that whenever you take an opponent’s piece, instead of casting it off the board, you simply stack it under your own. As the game develops, the most effective pieces grow taller and taller, adding a new layer of data to the board.
Basically, Kislev’s pieces let players visualize a small but not insignificant bit of their match’s history by stretching into the z-axis.The project was born out of an assignment at the Holon Institute of Technology, in Israel, where Kislev is an industrial design student.
