Forget plastic pawns and basic cardboard squares. Rimowa elevates the game with its Chess Attaché Case, a sleek silver aluminium masterpiece housing a complete chess set. Anodised aluminium chess pieces stand ready on a magnetic chess board, the entire ensemble designed for those who appreciate the finer things in life. This object of desire is also a statement piece for the discerning player.
Crafted in the heart of German craftsmanship in Köln, the case itself echoes the timeless elegance of Rimowa’s iconic luggage. Its minimalist design and gentle curves recall the brand heritage, while the ergonomic handle ensures carrying comfort. An integrated combination lock further keeps your precious pieces secure while on the go.
On the inside of the Chess Attaché Case, black leather lining embossed with Rimowa’s monogram and logo detailing whispers a quiet sense of refinement. Suede-like microfibre and foam compartments cradle the bespoke anodised aluminium chess pieces. Each of the 32 pieces are also laser-etched with the brand’s iconic emblem.
To complete the set, Rimowa creates a special chessboard in leather-wrapped wood with a precious aluminium frame. This sets the tone for your quest to checkmate. The board is also sandwiched within premium leather straps for extra security.
A touch of elegance underscoring the quality of every move, this exquisite piece currently retails at SGD8010 and it will arrive soon at local boutiques in Mandarin Gallery and Marina Bay Sands.
