The aim of this project was to recreate Past&Future wooden calendar with a luxurious finish and an exquisite look. Past&Future is a calendar composed of a box with two drawers, one for the past and the other for the future. The calendar begins with only one drawer — the future — filled with paper sheets where the user can write or draw or anything she likes. As the paper sheets are used, they are kept in the other drawer — the past. Then, they can be stored in a book-looking box and put in a bookshelf.
To give this Past&Future version a luxurious and exquisite character, the material chosen was stainless steel. Weighing 25 kg, it is handmade by demand and can be customisable.
The result is an object that is simultaneously light and heavy, pure and raw, simple and sophisticated.
