In the same way that many refer to time as an illusion, the Dodecal block calendar displays the date in a way that requires the brain to process the illusionary design. Created by UK-based designer Ric Bell, the Dodecal calendar is crafted from a block of wood that has been tailored with care to the exact shape of a dodecahedron (hence the name of the device). The wooden calendar is then treated to two coast of Osmo oil to provide a smooth, impressive finish.
The Dodecal has been laser-etched with each month of the year along with the individual dates to boot. The designer is set to launch just 100 of the Dodecal block calendars for sale at a cost of $79 each. The Dodecal features the month and day layout for the 2017 calendar year.
