PerpeTUO! Magic Box — Artifacts For The Home

We trully think Perpetuo! is a personal calendar, not ours, but definitely yours. For this reason we have designed six different “PerpeTUO!” Magic Boxes to help you sketching your Perpetuo!

Perpetuo! is a personal calendar, a perpetuo calendar, and it/him needs to change living with you, forever.

Designing Artemia’s Perpetuo! calendar we have been looking for illustrating a story made of paper, ferrying the observer across a river of typography, history and atmospheres: a calendar with no beginning and no end, no months and no years, but only days and the flow of time. 

Hour after hour, through the shadows that are created and bloom throughout the day, a visual tale is set up between the environment and the observer, devoted to emphasize the present. 

From the moment it is freed from its packaging, Perpetuo! starts narrating the time spent together and day by day it will grow with us.

We hope Perpetuo! stay together with you forever, and that’s why we have thought it has to change during the years, months and seasons you are living together. We have designed six different “PerpeTUO!” Magic Box to help you sketching your Perpetuo! and to help you on having a really personal calendar.

Some Suggestions of Use:
We know is hard to make a start on changing Perpetuo!‘s face, but it/he is designed for this. The only difficulty is to start, and then you will love it. We promise you!!! Just start… and you will see its/his real nature…

Where to start from:
For Our Perpetuo! calendar we have started removing the Artemia logo with a brush and in calligraphy we have drawn every important event we have lived with our Perpetuo! from the moment he arrived in our studio. Then during the months, we have add some PerpeTUO! Magic Box elements about our city, Venice (we chose mod. Venezia 01 + Lido 02).

Last but not least, we have found it/him a name, calling him Perpetuo! Tattoo. Now, we are always adding new calligraphies about our experiences and moments we live together, until when he will be totally full of tattoos!!! 🙂

 

And you? What would you do with your Perpetuo! calendar?
