Bauhaus Chess Set

History: This great minamilist chess piece was designed by Josef Hartwiga sculptor in 1924. Mr. Hartwig, born in Munich in 1880, was a Bauhaus sculptor who designed two key Bauhaus pieces: a chess set design, also known as Bauhaus-Schachspiel in German, or Bauhaus chess in English and "Owl" or "Eule" in 1922. The Bauhaus aka Staatliches Bauhaus, was a German school of art where Josef Hartwig was a head of sculpture department from 1921-25.

In the year 1924, Hartwig designed a number of geometrical shaped abstract chess set which were famosuly called as Bauhaus Chess Set. This design of the chessmen are in the way that the pawn and rook which moves in straight line are represented by the square prisms, the bishop features diagonal lines since it moves diagonally, the knights are L shaped, the king has straight and diagonal element and the queen has the circle on the top, which may represents that it can move to any cornor in the board.

    This chess set is a reproduction of a set by Josef Hartwig in 1924. Minimalist and modern in style, it is quite different. The designs of the pieces are very clever. The knight looks odd - as a knight should. The design of the bishop reflects the way in which the bishop moves. The set is a good price and arrived quickly.
