The MegaChess set from RMD Recuperacion Materiales Diversos built from 800 recycled tires was unveiled today in Stavanger’s Bjergsted Parken, Norway. The chess pieces are made from recycled car tires, weighing up to 240kg, and sit on the 144 squared meter board – the largest chess board in the World.
