DUEL is a contemporary take on Chinese chess pieces that turns the Chinese text characters to actual characters.

Many Chinese characters were derived from line drawings that represent things directly. Reversing that transformation, each wooden chess piece of DUEL now brings the artefact, animal or key figure in the Chu-Han War to life to remind us of the teachings of Chinese chess and the significance of every step that we take in our lives.
