"The main idea of a concrete board games series is to renew a live communication between people as the game is an effective interaction tool. We wanted to create a tactile, solid product with texture and imperfections. I am convinced that the future is in the digital world, but people make key decisions face to face", comments Slava Balbek, architect and co-author of the concrete chess sets.

Backgammon
Backgammon by propro is a handmade board game. Each set includes 15 solid and 15 ring-shaped stainless steel chips, 2 dice, and a 10 mm thick concrete board. The 373 x 330 mm playing field is framed by stainless steel borders.

The backgammon design was developed by Ukrainian architect Slava Balbek and a team of designers: Alina Vovkotrub, Roma Horoshylov, and Serhii Havrylov.

The board, the chips, and the dice are carefully packed in a box with a soft molded insert.
