Purling London has always embraced working with others. Since its beginning, it has enjoyed collaborating not only with artists and designers, in order to create beautiful hand-painted and hand-crafted bespoke games, but with venues and companies in order to provide entertainment for guests and clients, as well as to put together inspiring displays and exhibitions both in the UK and across the globe. We have had our chess sets used in advertisements, model shoots and one of our Dark Chess sets even features in a Wretch 32 Music video.
The video above is a broadcast produced by George Sells for HEC TV and is about our artistic and educational collaboration with the World Chess Hall of Fame, St. Louis, USA “Painted Pieces” exhibition. The programme talks about the theme of our exhibition and introduces the motivations and stories behind some of the chess sets on display. It also offers a glimpse of the Purling London chess sets that have been recreated in VR as well as explaining a little of the vision of Purling London as a luxury games brand.
We have teamed up with famous chess players and talented social media content creators. Recent collaborations include US Chess Champion Nazí Paikidze, International Master Tania Sachdev, International Master Anna Rudolf and Women’s World Chess Champion Alexandra Kosteniuk.
