This is one side of a full chess set. In order to get both the black and white sides, you should order the set twice in two different materials.
I designed the Sirius chess pieces to be instantly recognizable in order to make them easy and pleasurable to play with, while at the same time being sufficiently unusual and aesthetically pleasing to serve as a display piece in the home and as a conversation starter. I wanted to make the chess set that I would want to buy if I was only ever going to own one chess set, and this is the result.
The Staunton chess design, which this set is based upon, was made to be easy to manufacture on a lathe. That imposes some limitations in the artistic expression. When the medium is 3D printed plastic, such limitations don't exist. For example it becomes possible to portray the bishop in a way that more closely resembles a mitre hat. Also the crowns on the king and the queen can be more opulent and detailed. When it is possible to make all sorts of twisted concave shapes that are hard or impossible to manufacture with other methods, it is tempting to overuse that freedom. However my first priority was to make sure that the detail level is just high enough to give the eye enough information to quickly find and identify the different pieces. Adding interesting and exotic holes and bumps to the pieces just to play with the infinite possibilities would introduce unwarranted noise that would make the set harder to play with.
The king is 9.5 cm tall according to FIDE standards. The pieces are all hollowed out to keep the price as low as possible. It is recommended that you fill the cavities with some filling material, like a polymer or epoxy, and to weight the pieces down with a piece of metal in the bottom. Finish off with a round felt pad on the bottom, and you have a nice well balanced chess piece.
