On the chess board, the knight is embodied in his mount… The horse’s head – noblesse oblige – is the only piece able to jump over its opponents: a tried and tested method for overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles… Stylised here into architectural assemblages of geometric, coloured shapes, the loyal knight reflects the equestrian heritage of the house of Hermès, standing proudly on its base against a structured background of mathematical figures – or the arcane workings of delicate machinery. Chess aficionados evoke the beauty of legendary matches past. The chessboard is the theatre for a clash of personalities and strategies; following the moves is an aesthetic delight. Chess is a science, the ultimate mind-gym, and a fine art all its own, practiced by a host of thinkers, from Leon Tolstoy and Marcel Duchamp, to Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Lewis Carroll… For Hermès, anything touching on the world of the horse is home territory!
