Purling has collaborated with over thirty artists, including Sophie Matisse, Mr. Doodle and Thierry Noir. Every Art Chess set is hand-finished in London, England and can be made bespoke to your wishes.

FRANCESCO JACOBELLO

“Autunno, my 3rd collaboration with Purling London was inspired by the season in which I was born (November 1970) seems a long time ago in human terms, but could be yesterday in terms of nature! I achieved the rustiness of the autumnal leaves by using copper leaf. Each leaf was individually drawn, cut by hand and then applied to each chess piece. There are no repeated patterns throughout the set, so this means that each piece is an original and unique artwork in itself.”
