Kiki De Montparnasse Chess Set

By Doug Sinclair on June 21, 2011

Kiki De Montparnasse is known mostly for what you’d call high end “sensual” products, like lingerie, body oils, ticklers, and… well, you can imagine the rest. You probably already are, aren’t you?

Well now they’ve apparently found a brand new way to get down and funky: chess. Always a more sensual game than, say, Pop-o-Matic Trouble, sexy chess has been taken to the next level with this elegantly crafted chess set. It’s a handmade walnut game board with the usual 32 pieces in matte and gloss finishes, shaped in ways that could almost certainly go lots of places no pawn was ever meant to go. The product site is careful to point out that it was “designed and crafted for the purpose of playing chess”, despite the fact that it clearly wasn’t.

If you’re going to spend $10,000 on a chess set, you may as well be able to do things other than play chess with it, right?
