Japanese designer 'Higo' created the perpetual calendar to help the traditional paper-based timekeeping tools compete in an age fuelled by technology.

The calendar is an ordinary product with the potential to be something extraordinary. This minimalist grid system trades pages filled with cats or shirtless firemen for something a little more elegant. The innovative date system features a grid-like design that eliminates the need for flipping pages each month.

The design is comprised of a cleverly framed calendar that rests on a functional pencil holder, making for the perfect, space-saving desk accessory. To use the calendar portion of the product, users simply slide the metal frame to line the respected days with the dates. Because of its clever design, the perpetual calendar can serve for an entire year, creating a product with long-term functionality and usability.
