The Cube Calendar
Philip Stroomberg’s design of The Cube Calendar adds an innovative twist to the concept of the tear-off calendar. ‘Its shape results from deliberations about time.’
‘To me, the interaction with the design is important. I’m always looking for a shape on the basis of the content. The shape is the result of an idea, it isn’t based on established lines. I want to create it in such a way that the user develops a bond with the object.’
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
“With this beautiful design-calendar, Philip Stroomberg has added an innovative twist to the concept of the tear-off calendar. Not a messy sheaf of paper hanging from a nail on your wall, but a compact object that subtly changes shape in your hands: by tearing off a card each day, you reveal the workings of time.”

Divided into six rows, hundreds of cardboard cards line up, held together as a cube by two binding screws. The cards have been punched from two sheets of Algro Design.
The Cube Calendar comes in a specially designed box that ingeneously folds around the cube without glue or other adhesive. If you lift the lid, the box falls open like origami, leaving the calendar to be picked up.
