We love the Tielen Perpetual Calendar for its simple design and, well, perpetual usefulness. Apparently some folks in Sweden liked it too recently awarding the prototype a European Design Award last week in Stockholm.
Graphic designer Sander Tielen used the versatility of the digital numeral "8," creating different colored cards that slide in behind a black front to display the date with an appealingly clean retro '80s look. The number on the lower right hand corner in white indicates the month while the bright fading colors mark the day. Easy to use and read, all other calendars start to pale in comparison.
There's no word on price yet but you can contact Tielen directly to find out more.
