The thought behind this design was that the shapes and symbols of cubes, cylinders and balls should lead you move by move to checkmate.
The original Bauhaus design was sold in two versions, a "daily use" version and a hand-made "luxury" version.
Our design is a reproduction of the Handmade Luxury Version.

I reviewed all of the modern chess sets before choosing this one because it seemed to be the most faithful to the original Bauhaus design. The quality of the wood, the craftsmanship and finishes are superb. The pieces were individually wrapped in foam and very securely packed inside a cardboard box. It was shipped from Amritsar and the pieces would have survived unscathed even if they had simply dropped the box from the airplane. As an architect who collected Bauhaus furniture, I am highly satisfied with the product, especially for the price.
Nice chess pieces. Arrived on the indicated date, very well packaged and in perfect condition.
