Last Saturday snowed all day during the time of the event and I was so happily surprise when some friends, clients and other designers actually brave the cold and walked in the studio for the giveaway. I hope they found a warm welcome with Italian chocolate, espresso and lots of cheers. The online giveaway is still on until this evening and you can see a bit more of the Calendarbooks in the photos below. If you remember the post of the wood spools dye by hand in the fall, you can guess that the same idea of rolling ribbon, brought me the inspiration to use a strip of paper for our project. Silvana brilliantly designed the Calendarbook as a piece to measure time as well as space, based on 1 meter length of paper. Six months on one side and six on the other, each centimeter listed with date and day of the week. The paper tape is rolled around the spool and secured with metal eyelets and linen thread. To complete the object, I look for some Kraft paper boxes and brought 150 of them in a suitcase to Rome. If custom would ever stop me at the airport, would certainly wonder what do I ever do with these kind of materials back and forth from one country to another. But it is part of the fun of our collaboration. A big thank you to everybody that came on Saturday. Facebook and blog winner will be announced tomorrow, so please continue to let me know what you think of this project!
