Bauhaus Chessmen

Bauhaus Chessmen

True to Bauhaus tradition, Josef Hartwig's Bauhaus Chessmen ($450) show a form follows function approach to chess design with simple, solid maple pieces whose shapes reflect the moves each is allowed to make. The gorgeous 32-piece set comes packaged in a beech wood case that includes instructions and a history of the design. Part of MoMA's permanent collection, you might want to grab the matching Bauhaus Chess Board ($300) if you're thinking of picking up a set.
