Your past and future in a wooden box

The simplicity of this calendar is probably what makes it so special. Portuguese based studio BITRI has created the perfect wooden box. A box that holds both your past and your future.

‘Past and Future’ is anything but your common calendar. The future drawer contains dated sheets, printed on some of the finest paper, for each day of the year, which should then be carefully placed in the second drawer, used to hold your past. The concept is that both your unknown future and your known past are hidden from you, while the present happens when the paper is being written upon, and it can’t be hidden inside a box.

The secrets of this calendar are in the details. The materials are of exceptional quality, from the wood to the paper and fabric. The piece is homage to the traditional crafts, as it is all manually assembled; a good way to guarantee such a unique product. And we can’t forget the subtlety of the graphic design, shown through the typographic style, along with the printing and engraving methods on the paper and the beautifully polished box.
