Bombay Sapphire at the London Design Festival:
The Tournament by Jaime Hayón



In the second of our movies commissioned by Bombay Sapphire during London Design Festival, designer Jaime Hayón describes The Tournament, his giant chess set installation in Trafalgar Square.

Hayón also talks about other projects he's working on, including a pair of shoes for Camper (which he is wearing in the film) while Bombay Sapphire mixologist Merlin Griffiths creates a cocktail inspired by the installation called The Sapphire Tournament.

See yesterday's movie about Tom Dixon's Bombay Sapphire Dusk Bar.

    An unplayable chess set is pure evil

  • Unfortunately not quite as impressive when viewed in the flesh

  • dsgnr

    art, don’t call him designer please.

  • mmg

    You can play with the set – it’s not evil

  • I think it is not evil but It is quit impressive and especially I like its design. I have never seen this type of chess game before. So thank you Jaime Hayon for sharing such a great video.
