I find this calendar made of matches, invented by Yurko Gutsulyak, very interesting.
Each month of these quirky match calendars is represented by one page of the book, and each individual match represents one day.
I believe that the symbolism of this quaint calendar is very simple and quite clear: burn a candle which represents a day, and that day is gone for ever.
Implications - The tradition of using calenders and agendas may appear to be long gone, but certain designers are bringing it back with a contemporary artistic appeal. This style provides consumers with an alternative to technology and it's a welcoming aspect that avoids the complexity of high-tech products.
