Bentley Chess Set

Created by the Bentley Styling Team, the designers took their inspiration from the core elements of a Bentley automobile. The chessboard is crafted from a cherry wood with an overlay of Bird’s Eye Maple, Madrona and Burr Walnut veneers that echo the car's carefully crafted interiors. For the chess pieces the design team were influenced by various pieces of Bentley hardware such as the handles on a Mulsanne and the GT Speed steering wheel. The chess set is currently available through the Bentley Bespoke Auction, an auction established to raise money for the Prince's Trust, a charity that has been building the confidence and motivation of disadvantaged youth since its creation in 1976.
