Originally created by Cy Endfield in 1972 for the International Chess Federation as the commemorative chess set of the legendary World Chess Championship Match between American Bobby Fischer and Russian Boris Spassky. This edition commemorates the 50th anniversary of that match.
Cy Endfield developed an early appreciation of chess from his friendship with Man Ray and drew design inspiration from Modernist aesthetics and Marcel Duchamp with an emphasis on portability and efficiency in design. Endfield's chess set is lightweight and elegant, with pieces made of sheets of gold and silver that fit together into neat rolls when not in play, along with a foldable, stainless steel board and elegant carrying case.
