FROM DUSK TILL DAWN
Alexandra has designed a series of three atmospheric backgammon sets that channel the colours of her favourite sunshine cities. With their neon hues and abstract silhouettes, two photographic designs have a stylish retro vibe, while an intricate, after-dark creation in wood inlay brings a beautiful depth to the Midnight Marquetry backgammon set.
From the kitsch and colourful Miami to Los Angeles, the city where dreams are made, America’s most vibrant cities are famous for their beautiful beaches. Using a striking dégradé effect, Alexandra captures the brilliant colours of sunrise, backdropped by palm trees, a flamingo – a Florida icon – and stylised waves that roll across the board.
Housed in an Olive Wood box, Alexandra’s design juxtaposes the stylised with the photoreal, with abstract waves contrasting with a lifelike flamingo and seagulls that swoop across the neon-bright sky. Digitally printed on the board by a printer who specialises in the reproduction of high-quality fine art, the clarity of detail and colour is extraordinary.
