The Polish designer Tomek Rygalik created this modular carpet made from woven wool for the Spanish 2005-founded label ABR.

A single piece acts as a base in this model of carpet. The framework of the laterals represents a jigsaw puzzle. New pieces could be added longitudinally. Each piece is made of three different layers. Each layer has its own colour. That allows at least the use of two different colours with the outer layers.

The material of the carpet is completely new. Pure wool woven in a way it look alike felt. It is not conglomerated -as in felt. It has been woven with looms following a traditional Polish technique.

First presented at last year’s Stockholm fair the playful calender designed by StokkeAustad is now in production, thanks to the Spanish manufacturer ABR.

The starting point for this design is idea that the way in which year goes by is characterised by highly personal and subjective events. The Norwegian designers broke up the strict chronological order, that calenders usually has in order to enable the user to shape his own timing of the year.

“We wanted to design a calendar which would allow people to arrange their days more freely – does a year always move in a straight line? Does your summer feel more dominant than your winter, or the other way round?” the designers say.

The calendar is put together from 365 coloured, magnetic metal plates, each of which contains a date. The winter days are coloured a cool blue, but then in spring change to green before shining an intense yellow in the summer, until in autumn they change to a warm orange, then red, and then an intense violet.
