The Stendig Calendar, 2014 Edition

Categories: Architecture + Interiors, Art + Graphics, Modern Decor + Objects

2538-2-1

If it’s not too early to start thinking about 2014, it may only be because the Stendig Calendar lies in waiting, a fresh new year’s worth of days in tow. Massimo Vignelli’s 1966 design for the now-defunct furniture company Stendig (we think it may be time for a Vignelli Calendar name change) remains as arresting in our digital age as it was when it was unveiled nearly five decades ago—owing to its restrained, just-the-facts design and, foremost, to its scale. Though Vignelli designed a smaller version for those without the luxury of wall space, it’s his outsized (3×4 feet) calendar that elevated a simple grid of black and white numbers to ageless art piece—and inspiring starting point to each new year.
