Urban Cube Calendar

The idea came up for the first time when we biked around looking for numbers for urbnCal 2012 in Helsinki, where many of the street numbers were placed on light cubes. One of the ideas with our wall calendar urbnCal was to make something physical in a digital world. In this calendar we are taking it one step further, the cubes are meant to be handled daily and turned to the current date. Another important part is that you can use it for many years, it’s a sustainable fellow.

12 street numbers screen printed by hand on quality cardboard from Norrmalms Kartongfabrik, glued together in the shape of cubes.
The calendar is inspired by Esa’s mother who every morning grabbed two small wooden cubes and turned to the date, then the weekday and sometimes the month. Our version of the calendar is reduced to just show the date to get a stronger and clearer expression.

urbnCal 2011 taking shape

We just got back from a great week in Copenhagen biking around Vesterbro, Fredriksberg, Nørrebro, Østerbro, Christianshavn, Amager, Ørestad and the City area taking 1165 pictures, 365 of these will soon be urbnCal 2011. It is really one of the best cities to bike in and we learned that the Copenhagens bike 1,2 million kilometers daily! Since we had our two kids with us (aged 1 and 3) we also spent time in some nice playgrounds and discovered another dimension of the city. The city planning and the architecture seems to be on the forefront.
