daily stack

‘daily stack’ is time management tool created by designers sebastian rønde thielke and anders højmose. the simple design allows users to help track their work flow by creating physical representations of their tasks. the design consists of a small base and a series of wood blocks that each have a different colour and shape. each colour represents a different task and the time interval is determined by the size of the block. the user stacks their tasks on the base, committing to them. the base contains electronics that communicate with a computer, tracking time and tasks in progress digitally. the user can even go back through their archive and look at previous stacks. the design helps the user better visualize their time, helping them make the most of it.

    Przemek says:
  • what about the time to put all the pieces together again when the big constrution fall?

    insub2 says:
  • Pretty pointless, stuff like this is very counter active to actual organization and good working methods.

    Rory says:
  • Creative idea and from the looks of it very well executed. I am wondering though, what’s to stop me from forgetting to put the blocks on there in the first place? Yes, I’m THAT disorganised 😛

    Michel Jansen says:
  • And what if priorities change throughout the day, can you change the order of the stack without having to start over?
