The Bauhaus defined my favorite era of design. The functional properties of the products made during this time were clever yet beautiful. My favorite product from this period was the Chess Set by Josef Harwig. The game-pieces were shaped simply, elegantly, and brilliantly informed how the piece moves across the board.
Inspired by those principles, I designed a conceptual childrens toy/puzzle that informed the user of it's construction without instructions. The 2-dimensional pieces of the puzzle come together as 3-dimensional bird.
