'Style Wars (Chess Set): Modernists vs. Traditionalists' drew on recent style wars surrounding the Prince of Wales's controversial interventions into the UK planning process. The contentious issue originated from the Prince's speech 25 years ago at the RIBA in which he kickstarted a style war; Classicists versus Modernists.
With this project colour matching the chess pieces to the boards and the plinths was of paramount importance. Colour palettes were produced to select vibrant matching colours. Careful quality control was employed to ensure consistency of part finish across all nine sets and 288 pieces.
