I found this little gem in the most gorgeous vintage shop in Braidwood on the weekend. My parents had one in our dining room when I was growing up and I can remember changing the date for Mum and Dad. I haven't had a chance to change this one as Miss Billie keeps beating me to it everyday, I love that she will remember this when she is older. I wish my parents had kept theirs, did anyone else have one? I absolutely love buying pieces for my home that evoke memories. X
Yes, they are still available, I did a bit of research when I got home....
For those unfamiliar with this calendar which has become famous and historic piece of furniture, here is a brief history. The legendary '70s are the years where design, fashion and architecture come to everyone, with a breath of freedom and unconventionality. The normal everyday objects are colored with bright colors and polymers began to be widely used to produce various objects. The research and technical solutions have begun to "dictate" artistic suggestions to Italian design, erupting in the so-called “boom of the polymers” of '60s and' 70s. Years in which the Euroway debuted in the market with the first successful products. Designed by Giorgio Della Beffa in 1970 the "Ring a Date Perpetual Calendar" was immediately appreciated around the world, crowning success with several years of exposure to the "Museum of Modern Art" in New York (MoMA ). Then seeing the great success, as you can see in these photos dated 1971 were produced versions table and a middle measure version.
Today, this Timeless design object can be Yours.
