The Bauhaus Chess Pieces
Not merely by its educational methods of art teaching which it had developped as an academy of art, did the Bauhaus (1919-1939) show the way; also its influence upon architecture, painting and design was world-wide. Architects like Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and painters like Josef Albers, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee belonged to the teaching staff of the Bauhaus. The integration of art into life and the merging of the artist into the industrialized society were their common goal.
The chess pieces designed by Josef Hartwig in 1923 deviate from conventional pieces in that they utilize symbols based on the patterns of movement; they combine the steriometric shapes of the cube, the cylindre and the sphere.
