Maldives Chess Set – Created for Atmos Mundi
This stunning Maldivian chess set has been handmade by Geoffrey Parker as a special commission for Atmos Mundi Maldives.
This incredible chess set is inspired by the Maldivian culture, architecture and traditions. It has been created to be played in both the traditional Maldivian game Raazuvaa and can also be used to play the game we know today as chess.
Atmos Mundi proposes a notion of cultural richness driven by Maldivian heritage and the South Asian artisan spirit. Our designs are informed by eclectic cultural references from across borders and disciplines, but what motivates us the most is making things we want to see in the world, and in our homes.
