A concave landscape stabilizes freely quivering chess pieces, creating a lively interaction between chessboard and pieces. A perfect living room showpiece. A classic game with a modern twist. Motion is added to an otherwise still game with the board’s concave landscape that supports freely moving, weighted, playing pieces. This prize-winning Chess Set is made of beautifully polished maple and walnut wood and detailed with accents of chrome for a modern aesthetic. Wobble Chess Set comes in a natural maple and walnut wood finish with chrome and measures 16 x 16 x 3 inches.
Wobbling Chess Set: Umbra’s Wobble chess set has a concave landscape which causes the chess pieces to wiggle and helps them stay in place when the board is moved
Prize-Winning Design: Received an Award of Merit from HOW Magazine’s 2008 International Design Award competition, designed so that the pieces will not fall off the board while moving around due to their weighted base
Made Of Maple And Walnut: Wobble uses luxurious maple and walnut wood with plated chrome detailing for the ultimate beautiful modern chess set, sure to catch the eye of any viewer (or opponent)
Giftable: A fantastic gift for anyone who loves playing chess or wants to display their set as a decorative accessory for their home

The Umbra Story:
UMBRA is a Toronto-based homeware design company born over 30 years
ago when graphic designer, Paul Rowan, couldn’t find a nice window shade
to hang in his apartment window. So, he made one and people liked it.
He soon teamed up with childhood friend, Les Mandelbaum, and Umbra
(in Latin, “shade”) was born. Les and Paul began reimagining everyday
items into modern ware.
Today, UMBRA is recognized all over the world for bringing intelligent
design to everyday items. An in-house team of international designers creates
original design that speaks universally and personally to a broad customer base.
The journey that started in Toronto continues—UMBRA designs can be found in over 120 countries.
