The centre piece of the London Design Festival this year was a spectacular giant
ceramic chess set sat proudly on a glass mosaic board in the middle of Trafalgar
Square. It was created by Spanish designer Jaime Hayon. Chess exhibition matches
were organised by the ECF and the Design festival team which took place over 5 days.
British Championship winners were invited to participate in this unique publicity
opportunity for chess, and so Megan Owens didn’t want to miss the chance to go shopping
Stewart Reuben and Adam Raoof did a fantastic job with the commentary, and Ben Edgell
kept an official eye on proceedings.
