Man Ray Chess Board



Designer: Man Ray

This design was inspired by Man Ray's lifelong friendship with avid chess player and fellow artist Marcel Duchamp. This re-edition of the 1920s Wooden Chess Set is based on the original 1920 Man Ray Wooden Chess Set in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and was the inspiration for a larger silver version in the MoMA collection. In this set, Man Ray translates traditional chess pieces into pure geometric forms.
