Chances are, the Perpetuum calendar’s jagged shape looks reminiscent of something but you can’t quite put your thumb on it. The design takes inspiration from the architecture that emerged during the industrial age, nodding to the “sawtooth” roofs of factories built in the 1920s and 30s.
The design also pays homage to the time with its construction method, in which a 3D-printed fabric base emulates the era’s move towards all things synthetic. This analog format encourages connection between object and user, requiring human interaction while simultaneously drawing our attention from the screen and into the physical world. Best of all, it won’t ever run out!
