Out of more than 4000 entries SPAN has been shortlisted at the Swarovski, Crystal Vision competition by Designboom.
The game Chex, invented by Edelbert Wiedmann, comprises of a hexagonal board bearing 37 hexagons that form the field of the chess related game. The difference between chess and Chex is the reduced amount of figures and the speed of the game. Whilst traditional chess is orientated on ancient armies standing across each other on vast battlefields, Chex applies modern tactics of urban warfare. The applied digital design method allows for a fast fabrication process as the polygon modeling tessellation serves as a guideline for the faceting process, and is intended as a main design quality. The board and the figures can be sold as one unit or as individual collectors items.
