Perpetual Calendar by MoMA

We live in a busy world and we feel like time is flying. We start the week and in the blink of an eye it is finished. That is why we all keep an eye on the calendar in order to know what date it is and in order to keep deadlines and so on. That is why wall and desk calendar were invented and all offices have at least one. But they are made of paper and printed and you must change them every month or every year. That is unless you have a smart calendar like this Perpetual Calendar by MoMA.

It was created in 1998 by the industrial designer Gideon Dagan. He had this great idea of combining a calendar and a decorative object in one and this is the result. The design of the calendar is very simple, yet very effective and with a great visual impact. The calendar has a big metal frame like a circle that has all the months engraved on the upper side. Then there’s a metal line with all the numbers from 1 to 31, representing the number of days in each month. And then all you have to do is move the magnetic orange balls to the corresponding month and day . Nice and useful. And all these for just $28 from Lumens.
