We were approached by British Airways High Life Magazine to provide them with an artist-painted chess set and to advise them on the set up of the pieces. The photograph above features a one-off Art Chess set by Sophie Matisse. In order to reference the plot of the Amazon Prime series “Good Omens” – a six-part series about the approaching Armageddon and the unlikely teaming up of a demon and an angel (played by David Tennant and Michael Sheen respectively) in a fight to save the world – the arrangement of pieces was inspired by the famous “Immortal Game”.
