American visual artist, Emmanuel Radnitzky (Man Ray) was fascinated by the game of chess but more importantly, the pieces themselves. Originally manufactured in 1926, this chess set is based on a design from an earlier set, with stylised figures in wood that nod to Egyptian pyramids.
Material: beech wood
Country of origin: Germany
Dimensions: 2cm (h) x 43cm (w) x 43cm (l) / 0.8" (h) x 16.8" (w) x 16.8" (l)
A visual artist full of creative suprises, Man Ray refined his chess designs - and his game- throughout his early career. Influenced by Modernism and ancient Egyptian art his pieces have a typically surreal quality with smooth geometric contours and a rich weightiness that makes them satisfying to hold.
