3D Printed Chess Set by Johan Andersson

Swedish artist Johan Andersson designed a beautiful set of surreal chess pieces. Using 3D fractal formulae and SLS technology his set is abstract and intriguing and is drawing a lot of attention online.

"The full set is a play in 7 acts about humanity, the evolution and the quest for knowledge through enlightenment and superfluity until the day when mankind finally became the plague of the planet. A chess set immensely more surreal than Max Ernsts, Marcel Duchamps and DalĂ­s sets. Chess was made to be played with pieces of pure fractal mathematics, I now know that!"
