Dazzle Dawn is the new feature taking the narrative of ‘hiding in plain sight’ a step beyond normal chess sets. This concept adds another dimension to this chess set and an opportunity for players to create - dazzling strategies. ‘Hiding in plain sight’ was the idea behind dazzle camouflage patterns, invented by British artist Norman Wilkinson during World War I to protect ships from being attacked: their colour scheme made it difficult for the enemy to recognise and gauge distances.
The stark contrasting angular shapes cut across the features of the knight and merge together as you turn it, resulting in an image, which is eye-catching and unexpected. These knights might give you quite a different view on art and chess, as they invade your opponent’s fortress by hiding in plain sight.
