Chess is a thoughtful game and requires a high intensity level on part of the players. However, designer Thomas Larsen Roed, in collaboration with Maria Edvardsen and Armand Bentzen, has come up with a unique chess set that seems to lower the factor of seriousness, making it more attractive for common users. Hailed as “Okai Plai,” the chess set allows the user to let his or her imagination run free and find a favorite among the different characters. Decorated with simple means and clear colors, the characters are weighted according to their role in the game.
