Derek Welsh and Graphical House reinvent a board game classic

I’ll be honest, when I first started writing about art and design it never crossed my mind that the humble domino would be the subject of any of my articles. But the undeniably talented Derek Welsh has just produced not one, but two beautiful reimaginings of one of my favourite childhood pastimes, in collaboration with design studio Graphical House. Semaphor and Oblique both offer remarkably slick redesigns of the tabletop classic but with a rather more refined twist. So if you’re looking for a simple way of filling hours of festive downtime (yeah that’s right, it’s December already) then why not indulge in some designer-friendly dominos. After all, polkadots aren’t to everyone’s tastes.
