Perpetual desk calendar design
Design: arch. Carmine Sessa
>>100% MADE in ITALY<<
The perpetual calendar designed by architect Carmine Sessa takes shape based on the consideration that if we were to represent the passage of time, it wouldn’t be along an infinite straight line, but rather along a spiral that winds upon itself, following inscrutable trajectories. This thesis can be observed in natural phenomena such as seasons, planetary cycles, and patterns of growth in nature.
The spiral is a recurring symbol in the history of art and human culture, suggesting that its image reflects an intuitive understanding of time as a continuous process of evolution and change.
The perpetual desk calendar by dESIGNoBJECT is a true sculpture that measures the passage of time through the circular movement of three concentric rings: days, weeks, and months.
The manually rotatable rings display the date of the day while simultaneously showing all the days of the year, creating a kind of small portal of time with an evocative and refined design.
The Design perpetual calendar is handcrafted and produced in small series in Italy.
