These nifty, 3D-printed chess pieces are vessels that hold individual air plants, modernizing this ancient game, and turning it into a living, breathing experience. Living Chess sends you either a glass or bamboo board, along with 32 pieces and 32 air plants that go along with it. The 3D vessels have a fun, modern geometric design, and are made of eco-friendly corn-based bioplastic. Fascinating idea, via My Modern Met:
