Checkmate: Giant inflatable chess sculptures - Checkmate Chatswood

Chess is one of the few games which can be picked up and played anywhere in the world, it is a poetic game that uses beautifully crafted ‘mini sculptures’ each with their own set of rules and movements. We love how this game requires focus and intellect, how it can be played between two people of different ages and no common language. To take this iconic symbol and supersize it , we hope to bring an element of wonder and joy to the public as they explore our gigantic chess set. In two moves, one side could be in checkmate , which one is it?

Grab your camera and venture out to Chatswood CBD as chess takes over. Spot giant inflatable chess pieces: take a selfie with the king or queen, drop your best knight pose or rule the rook. It's an adventure you won't want to miss!
