Play; using one's senses (site, touch, and sound) to interact with an object while experiencing the changes in light and shadow, proportion and rhythm, depth of field, etc.
The objective for Naef toys is to produce play objects that unify quality design and superior swiss craftsmanship. This has been their focus for more than 50 years and will remain their goal well into the future. Naef demands extreme precision and quality in the manufacturing of their Swiss Made objects. Each product is inspected by hand before being packaged and shipped to customers all over the world.
Naef quailty products begin by specifically selecting woods that will not shrink or warp and will remain durable over time. All of Naef's painted products are made using non-toxic varnishes or clear coats.
Manoeuvre... This game of chess with clean lines is typical of timeless Bauhaus style. Josef Hartwig’s chessmen, designed in 1923, have characteristically reduced forms which, in contrast to commonly used figures, are symbols based purely on the function and form of the manoeuvre of each piece. Cubes, cylinders and balls lead you move by move to checkmate.
