fusing the past and future into one calendar, portuguese studio bitri has created a carefully crafted wooden box with two drawers. the project won a graphics platinum award in 2013, as well as a european design award. the calendar offers a different function to most, the separate compartments contain on one side, a record of the past and on the other, the future.

‘the future drawer contains a sheet of fine paper for each day that is kept at the past drawer after being used. the present? well, the present happens when paper is being written, it can’t be hidden inside a box.’ says bitri.

aside from the concept of the calendar, the secret, according to the designers lies in the details. high quality wood, paper and fabric materials have been completely manually assembled, ensuring each product is finely tuned and slightly unique. the graphic design itself has been treated through quiet typographic solutions and customized printing and engraving methods.
