Vitamins Design Studio has produced a fabulous wall calendar with the help of LEGO Bricks.
They have written on their website: The Lego calendar is a wall mounted time planner that we invented for our studio. It’s made entirely of Lego, but if you take a photo of it with a smartphone all of the events and timings will be magically synchronised to an online, digital calendar. It makes the most of the tangibility of physical objects, and the ubiquity of digital platforms, and it’s also puts a smile on our faces when we use it!
In exploring what we could do, we were tempted by all sorts of interactive tech-centered solutions – but the more we put technology at the forefront, the more restrictive the system became. We needed something that anyone could use, in any way they felt, and we had read about other companies who had used LEGO to visualise complex logistics systems in a simple and tangible way. We loved LEGO could be used to make complex information tangible, and after much experimenting we created a calendar on our wall which is made entirely out of Lego bricks.
Here’s how it works:
- Every row represents a month – we have three months on our wall
- Every column represents a day of the week
- Every project has its own colour, and we keep a little index hidden away to remember which colour represents which project.
- Each brick represents a half day spent on that particular project.
We’ve placed this on the wall in full view of the studio, because it means we can instantly look up and get a really quick overview of what we’re working on and what’s coming up.
