Fusing past and future in a crafted way. Back to the future with a special calendar.
Past & Future is not a common calendar. It consists of a carefully crafted wooden box with two drawers, one for the future and the other for the past. The Future drawer contains a sheet of fine paper for each day that is kept at the Past drawer after being used. The present? Well, the present happens when paper is being written, it can’t be hidden inside a box.
Besides its concept, the secret of this calendar is in its details. Materials are of exceptional quality, from wood to paper and fabric. Everything’s manually assembled, an homage to traditional crafts and a way to guarantee a unique product. Lets not forget graphic design, quietly shown through typographic solutions and their printing or engraving methods. This makes Past & Future a collectible piece, one you can renovate each year and build an archive with.
BITRI won a Graphis Platinum award with its Past & Future calendar. It’s one of the most prestigious awards in the world and there were only eight projects winning it in 2013.
Past & Future is a proof of BITRI’s special relationship with calendars. Another of its creations, the DIY calendar, also won several awards, such as a Graphis Gold and an European Design Award.
