GATTI is a modern and abstract chess set representing contemporary culture and globalization. The form is purely derived from the rule of the game where the base shape indicates the way each piece moves. Detaching from the literal representations of power, hierarchy, and politics, GATTI is a timeless celebration of formal beauty with a universal appeal, to be understood and appreciated by players regardless of their skill level and cultural background.

GATTI is made in combination of 3D printing and hand-made cast glass that commemorates one of the oldest games with the newest technology, reinterpreting democratic design with an artistic human touch. The color scheme is inspired by the Hawaiian sunset, adding a romantic aura to any interior space. Practical as well as aesthetically pleasing, GATTI can be enjoyed by everyone for playing or simply displaying.
