If Galileo played chess

There’s something so metaphorical about this spherical chess board! Like countries on our planet constantly picking sides and going on war, this spherical chessboard allows two teams to play against each other in a rather strangely warped, yet exciting planet-ish dimension.

Design student Ben Meyers began working on this project with his father in their garage. Each wooden segment on the globe contains a magnet underneath it, holding the chess pieces in place. Plus, you can also move sideways infinitely on this global chess board!
