Welcome to 2014! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season, and that you're excited to begin another new year. I thought I'd kick off 2014 with one final calendar post, featuring some very unusual ways to keep track of the year.
First up is a very clever wall planner that the London design studio Vitamins created for its office. Made entirely out of Lego, it's designed so that everyone in the studio is represented, and so that it synchs to an online calendar when they take a picture of it with their phone. It may sound a little complicated, but the above video gives a great overview of how it all works.
Then there's this interesting offering, a tear-off tea calendar, from Hamburg creative agency Kolle Rebbe for Hälssen & Lyon. Each day of the year is represented by a unique flavor that can be torn from the booklet-style folio and dropped into
hot water for you to enjoy.
Patrick Frey created this scarf calendar you unravel to mark the passing of time. Sadly, it's currently out of stock, but you can keep an eye on it in case it becomes available in Frey's shop.
