A fresh new book by the founder of Designers Guild
Photographic, geometrical, illustrated: which is your ideal calendar 2017?
Got tired of the same old, banal wall calendar? This selection of three, unique design calendars might be the thing for you… even as a gift idea
“Il Passeggero 8B” (“Passenger 8B”) calendar 2017 features the typical daily situations commuters usually face on public transport
The world is divided into two different groups of people: those who use their bank’s or supermarket’s complimentary calendar, and those who desire a beautiful object which can additionally provide a suitable decoration for their homes. For the latter category we’ve selected three stunning ideas for a super inventive calendar 2017.
Firstly, the Dodecal 3D 2017 wooden calendar by Ric Bell. A definitely unusual wall calendar, a mini-sized, hyper contemporary decorative object: designed with pinpoint precision and made of entirely sustainable materials, it is a polyhedric, three dimensional object born from the perfect blending of digital techniques and traditional manufacturing. Ideal both for the home and office.
For traditional calendars lovers and photography addicts, Photodarium is a tear-off calendar that reveals a new instant photo every day. A Polaroid-style snapshot to best represent the different times of year through a gallery of natural and urban landscapes, portraits and still natures. Actually more than a simple calendar – a sophisticated, retro-style photographic book.
Our third calendar idea is the ironic “Il Passeggero 8B” (“Passenger 8B”), which illustrates, month by month, the typical situations commuters face every day. Who, on their work or study travels, has never been tempted to imagine, at least once, what the lives of their fellow commuters might be like? Valentina Cobetto, the author of this captivating calendar, decided to give a face and a personal history to all the people she encountered in the course of her commuter life… since she first met the real passenger 8B, that is – and subsequently portraying him. Little, savory sketches of everyday life in which many of us won’t certainly fail to recognize themselves.
So, which one of the three are you going to pick as your choice calendar 2017?
