With a contemporary atmosphere, FIDE's ebonized design was designed in line with the chess aesthetic and with the corresponding black and white base felts. This is the official set of the World Chess Championship approved by FIDE. Based on Shelby's experience with the Ultimates set, I realize how long and arduous it is to work with manufacturers from outside the country. Obsessed chess fans probably realized that when the World Chess Championship arrives, Magnus Carlsen always uses the same chess pieces, no matter who is sitting in the chair in front of him: Vishy Anand, Sergey Karjakin, Fabiano Caruana or, like this year, Ian Nepo.
The pieces are based on the proportions of classical Greek architecture and the classic Staunton design to create an ensemble that is both modern and traditional. The sets are sold exclusively at World Chess and are available in the official online store, as well as at a select group of partners, including Chess and Bridge, Harrods and other stores around the world. The set was studied in detail by the FIDE expert panel and unanimously approved for use in the Championship. Daniel Weil's set was completely new and very different from the one manufacturers were used to carving.
After posting this thread, I remembered that few people here actually own the official FIDE world chess set. The table (the size is 50 x 50 cm and the square size is 5 x 5 cm) is made of walnut and goes perfectly with the set. Today I bought the 17 inch green vinyl chess set. Great product, I loved it, the perfect, better and premium vinyl checkerboard ???? my father and I enjoy daily chess, sometimes I win, sometimes dad wins, it's a lot of fun to play with a top quality chess set, the pieces are of quality and weighted to make them feel premium in games and The mat is incredible, I would recommend going for it instead of an expensive wooden set and it's only 599 and 17 inches, it's huge, I loved it and thanks to the best deals, I'll order another one for my brother ????.
Daniel Weil drew on the experience of Magnus Carlsen, Vladimir Kramnik and other chess stars and tested the numerous versions of the set to determine if it would be comfortable to lift the pieces with two fingers or with a grip. On both the World Chess and the RCM board, the frame appears to be made of solid wood, but I think they use a plywood base under the squares. Carlsen won the tournament and hasn't used a different chess game in any of his championship games. Before the World Chess Championship set was used in matches, the approval of the sport's governing body, FIDE, was required.
The set immediately attracted media attention and appeared in influential design magazines. It is then shipped to the World Chess facilities in London and Berlin and, after further inspection, is sent to buyers. The set was designed by Daniel Weil, from Pentagram, for World Chess and has since become one of the most emblematic chess designs in the world.
