Chess Block

This art object by Dominic Harris is an architectural and lighting play on taking a traditional chess board and extruding it in three dimensions to create a unique new object that is simultaneously both an abstract lighting object and a functional design piece.

 

The pieces are comprised of illuminated optically clear glass shafts that span between the mirror polished stainless steel base and the top stainless steel plate. The chess pieces are solid glass blocks each containing an intricate three dimensionally illuminated representation of the piece.
