Lately, I have been deepening my knowledge of both Rhino 3D modeling program as well as the rendering plug-in Brazil. With this combined technology I can create highly detailed and realistic representations of my 3D models. This non-commercial chess set project  proved to be a great practice ground for testing different materials, lightnings and environments. Instead of the traditional chess pieces, I decided to recreate some iconic mid-century(ish) Scandinavian chairs and use them as chess pieces. The project is also a tribute to the architects and designers, I so love; Verner Panton, Arne Jacobsen, Alvar Aalto, Eero Aarnio and Eero Saarinen. The whole set if, of course, just a concept. Still, I just want to pick-up one of those little tulip stools and start playing.
