Thoughtfully Designed Everyday Products

Hello and welcome to our shop!

I'm Sait and I'm the founder and designer of PLA Concept, a small business from sunny San Diego, California!

What is PLA? Well, it's a material we use to make our prototypes from. Even though most of our products are made from strong and durable resin, they all started with PLA. It also forms some of our favorite words: PLAY! PLACE! PLANT! We are focused on games that have rarely changed designs. We want to bring clean aesthetic and unique modernism to all these games!

We are starting with one of our favorite games in the world, chess! Chess is seen as a sophisticated game -which it can be- but it has very simple rules. It’s one of those things that take minutes to learn but a lifetime to master. We value thoughtful design so we have spent more than three years to develop this collection. Also we are launching planters, coasters and jewelry holders with the same concept.

All designs by PLA Concept are handcrafted in small batches. We are trying to minimize waste by reducing unnecessary packaging and reusing boxes and wraps where possible.

Care instructions

Please be careful with any liquids or chemicals around the chess set. Don’t leave the products outdoors, exposed to direct sunlight or very hot places. Resin parts (especially white resin) may change color in time. Our chessboards are made of real hardwood veneers and marble stone tiles so take care of them as you would take care of a furniture of same material. Wooden parts might need refinishing over time. Marble chess boards are very heavy so be careful while carrying them around. PLA Concept is not responsible for any damage caused by accidents with our products.
