To coincide with the London Festival of Architecture and the London 2012 Olympics, Gallery Libby Sellers is currently holding an exhibition entitled Games. The show laterally interprets its title and the theme of ‘play’ by focusing on chess, other games and their accessories, with pieces designed by Rolf Sachs, Aberrant Architecture and Studio Frith, among others. We interview Simon Hasan about his Slice chess set and Paul Kelley on his games table and try to understand why chess is such a perennial form of entertainment, whilst Libby Sellers herself takes us through the inspiration for the exhibition.
