Product description

Authoritative for the advancement of design and architecture in the 20th century was the art pedagogic program of the legendary "Bauhaus". The philosophy of the interlock of artistic, manufactured and social dimensions is considered as the fundamental turning point to the "Industrial Design".

And as other results of the Bauhaus appears the check game with its clear line management absolutely timeless and is designed to a consequentially classic. Not least because its checked, reduced chequerboard-optic seams to be a Bauhaus-Design. Josef Hartwigs figures of the year 1923 are characterized through its reduced shapes. Cube and Ball quard you through the moves to the checkmate. The shape of the figures are not caused on the historical examples, but through their function in the game. They are supposed to make the rules of the game easier to understand for everybody.

\"The new tiles are made of the stereometric types: Ball and cube. Single or combined, they specify with their shape the gangue, and with their volume the worth. The pawn and the rook draft orthogonal to the border of the board, demonstrated through the ball. The knight moves right-angled in a shape of a check, right angled cube formation. The bishop moves diagonal to the border of the board: a saltire sliced out of a cube. The king moves right-angled and diagonal: a small cube diagonally on a bigger one. The queen, the most movable figure, is made up of cubes and ball\", comments about Hartwig his Werk.

The Naef Games AG creates the Bauhaus-Toys after their original designs.
