PURLING LONDON CHESS sets have been exhibited at Christie’s, Saatchi Gallery and the World Chess Hall of Fame. Many of these works have been the choice of royalty, renowned interior designers, art collectors and chess Grandmasters. Purling has collaborated with over thirty artists, including Sophie Matisse, Mr. Doodle and Thierry Noir. Each Art Chess Edition is made in England and limited to 64 Giclée printed sets *
This Purling Art Chess Edition is designed by British-born fashion designer Zizi Donohoe. It features a striking colour combination of peach and blue tones, with clouds and marble-like patterns.
Working from her Los Angeles based studio, Zizi Donohoe channels an obsession with Old Hollywood glamour and the opulence and excess of the eighties, inviting her audience to enjoy an updated take on traditional luxury.
Praised by Vogue for the “elegance and timelessness” of her designs, Zizi has amassed an impressive global clientele of celebrities, philanthropists and real women alike, her pieces can be found at Moda Operandi and Galeries Lafayette Champs Élysées.
A unique new Purling bracket enables this chess board to hang on the wall as a painting for display and storage and ‘float’ above the table when in play.
We are currently offering introductory pricing for the first 10 Zizi Donohoe Art Chess Editions, which will then rise to GBP £3,500 / US$5,000 for the remainder of the limited edition.
