World Chess Set (Home Edition with Bauhaus Walnut Board)
The 2022 World Chess Championship Set (Home Edition with Bauhaus Walnut Board) is designed by Pentagram’s Daniel Weil. The iconic official Championship Set design remains intact but the size of the set is adapted for home and club use. King’s size is 3 inches, and the overall size of the set is 20% smaller than the Championship Set. Pieces for this set are handmade from boxwood by expert craftsmen.
The design of the board is inspired by the Bauhaus tradition. It does not have a full-size border, making it very precise and geometric. This board design has been introduced by World Chess in 2022. It was manufactured from high-quality MDF and walnut. The classic World Chess hexagon is inlaid on both sides.
