NONA chess figures
Design: Annabelle Klute, 2021
The distinct outline of NONA chess figures illustrates a decisive cut and minimum design intervention to create each character. Each figure is inspired by the moves it can make. NONA is named in appreciation of the first woman to be awarded the International Grandmaster title in 1978.
The wooden chess figures are hand-made in Germany and are finished in clear and black lacquered oak with felt gliders. They are developed with attention to proportion and scale in relation to the corresponding chessboard NONA in harness leather, which is available separately.
