The ancient game of chess is based on strategy and winning is ultimately being the better strategist. The table was designed to reflect this exchange between opponents. The players think long-term, protect certain pieces, while losing other pieces to get ahead in the game. This constant change in mindset: protect, let go, lose, capture creates a shift in power throughout the game, and the table reflects these shifts. The delicate reveals and movements on the table and its legs are an idea into battle between a player and his opponent.
