Chess sets: Another minimalist design

Hello Everyone,

Minimalism is a genre of art and design - particularly in visual art and music - where the work is stripped down to its most fundamental features.

We found this interesting minimalist chess set designed by Lanier Graham. All puzzles interlock to make a rectangular 'full' piece! Each piece is shaped according to its function and is sized according to its importance. The cherry and maple wood pieces with a natural oil finish appear nice. It's part of a designer MoMa production line.
