Measure calendar by Hiroyuki Miyake

Japanese designer Hiroyuki Miyake's calendar works like a retractable tape measure, with one centimetre for each day of the year.

The Measure calendar is produced under his own brand, M75.

Oscar Diaz' Ink Calendar that uses the capillary action of ink spreading across paper to display the date was one of our most popular stories last year.

Here's a tiny bit of text from Miyake:


It is a calendar which measures the time of replacing 1 cm with 1 day.

By visualizing the length of the time, you can recognise something new feeling about the passed days and the left days.

At the present age when all things are digitised and even the time is equalised, I believe that this calendar gives new value of the time.

    Combining time with meter (measurments) was already done a year ago. http://www.recyclart.org/2011/02/timeter/

    To Marja,
    So what it, that it has been done before? Please cut this attitude.
    Copy of a copy is an orginal when you develop it further.
    Plus we always copy from each other.

    Apart from that, this is a great poetic project of time, with nice graphics.
