The Official FIDE Weighted Chess Set was first used on DGT boards at the World Championship Match in 2013 in Chennai India when Magnus Carlsen used the pieces to defeat Vishwanathan Anand and become the 16th World Champion.
The distinctive set was designed by internationally renowned Pentagram designer and architect Daniel Weil. The pieces are based on the proportions of classical Greek architecture and the classic Staunton design to create a set that is both modern and traditional.
These pieces are electronically enabled for use with DGT boards including the DGT Revelation II chess computer.
