Win the iconic Bauhaus Chess set

The striving for clarity and simplification in favour of the recipient is evident in the Bauhaus chess as in hardly any other object of utility art. It also delivers its contemporary and even timeless modernity not only to the pure end in itself.

The winner of the Bauhaus Chess set will be voten and announced on 30th August.
