We here at Red Crayon appreciate many fine things, but we love amazing design and most of all we love a good marriage between innovation and design! This beautiful calendar by Spanish designer Oscar Diaz is stunning in it’s simplicity. The calendar is made of paper, with the dates of the months an additional layer of paper, and each month a fresh bottle of ink is attached with the end of the paper dipped into it. It takes 24 hours for the ink to be absorbed through each number so the passing of time is matched by the passing of the ink through the paper and as the designer states – it should appeal to our senses and touch our perception of the passing of time.
The calendar appeared as part of an exhibition in Madrid titled ‘Suenos De Un Grifo’ where the exhibition explored the part played by objects in our dialogue with water.
