A strikingly beautiful, modernist chess set designed by Austin Cox of Austin Enterprises for ALCOA (Aluminium Association of America) in 1962. These mesmerising sets were produced as gifts for ALCOA's top customers. They feature 32 pieces displayed in a walnut case, enclosed by the original blue plexiglass cover that slides out, allowing access to the set. The pieces were cut from aluminium bars; the white appearing in a natural aluminium finish, with the black differentiated by black anodized sides with regular aluminium faces. All pieces bear a stamp on their undersides: 1962 Austin Enterprises. These sets are the talk of chess players and collectors, but are also marvellous as simple, sleek ornaments and perfect examples of refined design. No board included.
