Let’s date back to the year 1966. It’s the year Massimo Vignelli, an Italian designer, designed the classic Stendig calendar. In the subject of design, the Stendig Calendar wins in its aesthetics. Fact is, Massimo Vignelli’s monochromatic, oversized design calendar is the only one of its kind to have been added to the Museum of Modern Arts permanent collection, the same year it was designed. The monochromatic calendar was able to keep its place in design history 50 years after. More than the Stendig being just a calendar, it is able to manifest art in its own form.

One attribute the Stendig calendar has is its oversized design, comprised of 12 sheets from January all the way through to December, with its alternating black and white pages. The font used in the calendar is in Helvetica type printed on 60lb paper. Another feature is its three black eyelets on the binding strip for easy hanging and the punctured sheets for an easy way to tear of the page.

When it comes to keeping things on track, even the most well-organized people can forget the little details, not without keeping things noted down. As 2016 draws to a close, it about time to start off the year right and keep track of your everyday life. The Stendig calendar is a timeless piece perfect for any modern space!
