'SHAH MAT' /PARTI
The game chess first emerged from a game that was similarly played in India. But it was in Persia which the word 'CHECKMATE' found its origin. The Persian word for checkmate is 'SHAH MAT'.
The most important thing when playing chess is to trap the opponent's king and create a perfect position to "capture" the king and this position is 'CHECKMATE', the word checkmate means that "the King is ambushed or defeated" or basically the game is over.
For my design concept I will be using famous checkmate positions to create spaces for my entertainment center. I will combine and create positive/negative spaces using these checkmate positions.
