Max 365 calendar by Massimo Vignelli2018 is a matter of months away, but twentytwentyone’s selection of classic and contemporary calendars is certain to satisfy the most fervent of forward-planners.

Get set for the new year with Massimo Vignelli’s 2018 Stendig calendar, designed in 1966 and immediately recognised as a design icon: it remains the only calendar in the design collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Stendig calendar 2018 by Massimo VignelliThis timeless design lays out the months ahead in bold Helvetica type on alternating sheets of black and white paper. Tear off the sheets as the month ends and use them as wrapping paper if you can’t bear to dispense with them.

It’s worth bearing in mind that we have limited stock of this highly sought-after design, so do place your order early to avoid disappointment.

If a more playful approach is called for, Good Morning’s Zoo calendar is certain to appeal to adults and children alike.

Equally three-dimensional and just as decorative – though very different in appearance – Ric Bell’s Dodecal is a polyhedral form carved from solid American cherry wood and laser-engraved with the months of the year.

If you’re seeking a more permanent addition to your desk, we have a range of perpetual calendars to assist your time planning year after year, from Enzo Mari’s 1967 charismatic Timor desk calendar with a form inspired by Italian railway signage…

New calendars for the new year

Madison Graphic's year planner for Dam Prints

2017 is merely months away, but twentytwentyone’s collection of calendars will stand you in good stead for the new year.

Our selection ranges from contemporary designs such as Maddison Graphic’s 2017 year planner (above) to calendars which have achieved the status of genuine design icons – such as Massimo Vignelli’s Stendig calendar (below).

Designed in 1966, Stendig’s simple and timeless design has been a firm favourite with the design-conscious for more than half a century and is the only calendar in the design collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Once removed from the calendar, Stendig’s monthly pages with their alternating black and white Helvetica font can be used as wrapping paper – many people find them simply too good to throw away.

Enzo Mari’s Timor desk calendar is another design classic, designed in 1967 and originally inspired by Italian railway signage. Standing on a base pressed from a single piece of plastic, a series of cards indicating month, day and date can be rotated to represent the correct date.

Equally iconic in their own way are two other perpetual calendars stocked by twentytwentyone. In contrast to his year-specific Stendig, Massimo Vignelli’s Max 365 (below left) is a perpetual calendar consisting of a single date printed on a succession of heavy-duty card sheets.

Jean Pierre Vitrac’s Imbroglio calendar (above right, and available in wall and desk versions) consists of a powder-coated steel panel with a magnetic cursor that can be moved to indicate the correct date.

However, if you prefer your year to be more precisely mapped out, Blokhope’s 2017 calendar (below) offers a traditional month-to-a-page format sharply printed in fluoro red ink.
