1966 Chess Set by Lanier Graham

A while back, we posted about the Bauhaus Chessmen. One of our readers shared yet another minimalist chess game with us: the 1966 chess set by Lanier Graham.

Similar to the Bauhaus Chessmen, Lanier’s set has pieces shaped in such a way that they represent how they should move: the knight has an L-shape, for instance.

On top of that, the pieces are also designed in such a manner that they fit snugly together in the box, like a puzzle, and thus taking us minimal space. Impressive. (Thx, Pawel!)
