Naef Bauhaus Chess Set by Josef Hartwig

Love chess? Love modernist design? You really do need this Naef Bauhaus Chess Set by Josef Hartwig.

Yes, straight out of Bauhaus school, it was designed by Hartwig back in 1923, replacing the classic chess shapes with something cleaner and unmistakably Bauhaus – cubes, cylinders and balls in other words.

The 32-piece set comes in its own Bauhaus-branded box, selling for £350.
