Umbra Wobble Chess Set

Umbra Wobble Chess Set


This is the very beautiful and elegant Wobble
Chess Set from Umbra, and it does that very thing. It wobbles. Designed by industrial
engineer Adin Mumma, this striking chess set was inspired by the 1970s Weeble toys. Each
piece is reinterpreted with a simple curve, and weighted dome base to allow for balance.
The maple and cherry wood board also takes an organic approach, almost wave like. It’s
concave squares create a playful landscape and ironic surface for wobbly pieces. Now
if you’re prone to sea sickness I don’t know if I would play it, especially on a boat.
Could you imagine playing wobble chess on a boat?
