AvL backgammon boards are equal parts hardwood and cast resin and a balance between the natural and the manufactured with raw woodgrains obscured by stripes of acrylic paint and delicate organic matter trapped in a clear resin block. The juxtaposition of these elements provides a visual meditation on the themes of impermanence and our own relationship to the natural order, as well as an appropriately playful backdrop for, well, a game.
The wood frames are built and finished in east London; the cast acrylic panels are fabricated in Wiltshire; the marble pieces are cut and polished in London; and the leather tumblers are made in Italy, outside Rome.
Includes one set (30 pieces) of custom-cut grey and white marble checkers, 4 dice (2 black, 2 white), handmade leather tumblers, and doubling cube.
Features a cherry wood frame in the Vermouth pattern with Marsh plants, speckled jewel beetle (Thailand), and spotted flower beetle (Cameroon) embedded in resin.
Delivered in a custom cloth case with accompanying cloth accessories case.
