Enzo Mari is a philosopher whose intense deliberations result in timeless designs. His deliberation on each design is so intense that It is said that Mari took a full year to design an ashtray. So perhaps it's fitting that Enzo Mari designed "Timor," a perpetual calendar displayed in many of the world's modern art galleries and museums... and one that's being produced by the Italian design store Danese.
The Timor's frame, inspired by European railroad stops, is made of durable ABS plastic and the frame's dimensions - approximately 6.5" x. 6.5" x 3.5" - provide stability for the die-cut durable cardstock date indicators that fan out in staggered fashion from the frame's large pin.
In black and white, Timor table calendar is now available from Hive. What a elegant and timeless design piece for a desk, shelf or even refrigerator top.
