Final: Dining with Chess
Dining with chess plays off interpersonal relationships. It can apply to the game of seduction between two lovers, or the game of business between two partners. It can apply to friends, family, or enemies. Whichever pair it may be, this design intends to strengthen the relationship by combining food, game, and people into one.
Each chess piece is designed with a certain disposition in mind. These containers are small but incredibly versatile. They are most fitted for drinks or soups and small food, such as sushi, dumplings, snack food, or simply small-portioned dishes. Players have the option of playing several games totaling an entire meal, or a few games totaling snacks, appetizers, or desserts. The pieces can serve as vessels for a tea ceremony or drinking game. The option of checkers, with the use of solely pawns as players, is also available.
