We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This is XYZ Workshop's winning entry into the MyMiniFactory chess and Pen design competition.
The design is loosely based on a Bauhaus Style Chess set. We were interested in blending the simple strong geometric forms of the chess pieces with nature. The chess pieces allows nature lovers to integrate their favorite succulents or herbs into their game play.
Each Chess piece can be planted with specific herbs or succulents to give them a level of individuality and personality. This also allows the player to assign unique textures, colors and smell to the pieces. Use some Corsican Mint to bring some minty freshness into you game, or perhaps a series of hard wearing cacti if you don't have a green thumb.
We have also included a printable/portable chess board skin, measuring only 0.6mm thick. Printing four of these allows the player to turn any flat surface into their chessboard. Make this Green Chess set a feature in your garden, or bring the garden into your living room.
