Bauhaus Chess Set by Josef Hartwig (1923)


This game of chess with clean lines is typical of timeless Bauhaus style. Josef Hartwig’s chessmen, designed in 1923, have characteristically reduced forms which, in contrast to commonly used figures, are symbols based purely on the function and form of the movement of each piece. Cubes, cylinders and balls lead you move by move to checkmate. Beautifully made and hugely pleasing, this chess set has been loved by our customers for as long as we've been in business. 

Suitable from age 6.
