The pieces represent striking buildings in Rotterdam:
Queen: Erasmus Bridge
Rook: The Meuse

Bishop: World Trade Center
|De Maas is Rotterdam's River,|
(in English: The Meuse).
Probably the rook is designed after the
high buildings that can be seen along the river.
|The cube houses|
I wish I could win this beautiful chess set with such a remarkable and creative design...Maybe Caissa will help me?! Another option is to buy it:
There are two places from where you can buy (see underneath) the Rotterdam Chess Set for 250 Euro, including taxes. An XXL version of the same Rotterdam set can be purchased for 2500 Euro, including taxes, and it can be used for schools for example. You can see it exposed
I am sure kids will love it, as it can be seen in the following video, from the previous year in a children festival:
