A Game of Materiality | Alexandra Llewellyn

Jul 31, 2019, 07:22 AM
For designer Alexandra Llewellyn, working life is all fun and games. That’s because the niche she’s found for herself is in making exquisite backgammon boards and poker sets. Inspired by visits to Cairo, and joy and clamour of street-side backgammon playing, the games she makes today explore materiality – using not just woods, but leathers, metals, glass and stones – transforming the experience of playing these popular games.
