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.

Web Trend Map by Information Architects

Web Trend Map by Information Architects

Every year the Japanese Information Architects publish a new Web Trend Map, modelled on the design of the Zokyo Metro Map. It shows the 333 most influential domains and the 111 most influential people in the world wide web. The domains are evaluated according to the number of clicks, the time of existance and the company who owns it. The position of the domain on the map depends on its sort of influence. Twitter for example is situated in Shibuya, one of the hippest places in Tokyo.
