Got Chess (2015) by Peter Baeten Got Chess (2016) by Peter Baeten Got Chess (2017) by Peter Baeten Got Chess (2018) by Peter Baeten Got Chess (2014) by Peter Baeten

Flat design meets Moleskine notebooks meets… chess.

Inspired by classic leather notebooks, this pared-back chess set is gorgeous in its simplicity and execution. Belgian designer Peter Baeten has channelled his love of classic leather notebooks into this beautiful minimal chess set.

“By working with the silhouettes of the pieces, it walks the line between 2D and 3D. Because of this, only the ones who are playing have a complete overview of the pieces on the board. Bystanders will have to do with seeing lines move around on the board,” Baeten explains.

“The set is lasercut and hand varnished, so the natural wood grains remain visible. It contains 4 tablets and a leather cover which also serves as a pad to play on. There are no screws, hinges, glue, or any other type of materials used, therefore there is no assembly necessary, and each single piece can easily be replaced.”

“Her most recent work Are We Still Going On? (top images), was conceived at Collezione Maramotti, a private collection of contemporary art in Reggio Emilia, Italy, and involves hundreds of children’s shirts hung in rows to resemble the interior hull of a giant ship. The shirts are organized by color on each side of the skeletal boat to represent a sort of symbolic dialogue about gender.” ( via colossal)

His suits are made of various textiles and objects and during the dance performance become a musical instrument in themselves.

We have a little hangover

Bart Hess is known to take the already extraordinary to the next highest level with his alternative take on combining new materials and ideas. From designing Lady Gaga’s famed slime dress to establishing his own personal stylistic signature, Hess has developed projects in collaboration with different names and personalities in the fashion and music industry. His harmonic use of unexpected materials in almost disruptive scenarios has conceded him to make a mark in different disciplines, breaking down the rules of conventionality in all of them.  His latest project, in collaboration with HeyHeyHey, a dutch design studio, for the 2011 STRP Art and Technology Festival campaign features the STRP mutants. The festival combinates art, music and technology, where robots, concerts, movies and so forth, will  feature a 360 degree experience throughout the three disciplines.  Along with the fantastic set of pictures, a teaser featuring the Hess’s supernatural mutants was released to promote the festival. As Bart himself said, these creatures covered in glistening skin are born from the concept of transformation; in particular, the movement of the constant change in the boundaries between art, technology and music. The face-less mutants stand in confident super-hero poses, although struggling with the layer of skin between them and the outside world. Despite the fact that the shape within the mutant is somewhat human, they arouse feelings of tension and a peculiar eerieness revolving around the discovery of the unknown. Bart Hess has proved us, once again, that a picture is truly worth a thousand words.
