Architecture and chess may not be two cards commonly played together, but Skyline Chess have done just that.


Conceived whilst sharing a flat and playing chess together in the evenings, London based architects and Co-Founders Ian Flood and Chris Prosser have re-imagined some of the world’s most iconic skylines, bringing them to life as both chess pieces and playing cards.

Whether in the Big Apple or Big Smoke, we couldn’t think of anything more enchanting than a game of cards with friends with the skyline in view – and in hand.
