First designed for MoMA in 1998 this smaller version of the Perpetual Calendar was introduced in 2008 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of its original design.
One magnetic ball, which marks the current month along a semicircle curve, hangs suspended in the air by a tether and can be moved to the next month at will. The other ball, marking the days, slides along a flat path. Both of the balls have to be moved manually, but there’s a certain pleasure in having each one snap to the next position as you move it. The calendar can be wall-mounted or placed on a flat surface, whichever you prefer.
Designer Gideon Dagan has developed numerous consumer and commercial products including hand-held computers and electronic instruments. His innovative designs have been exhibited in museums around the world.
Our products ship through a privately owned climate-controlled warehouse in San Diego, California.
We offer a variety of shipping methods from budget-friendly to price-doesn’t-matter. You can compare estimated costs and transit times once you begin the checkout process and enter your shipping address. Carrier options may vary based on your destination.
We strive to pack and ship all items within 24 hours of each order (Monday through Friday). However, we are a small team so during peak holiday season we kindly ask that you allow 3-5 days for your items to be sent on their way. Every box shipped from Art of Play is expertly packed by actual human beings (you can see their names written on your package slip). Everyone in our warehouse is paid a fair wage and treated with respect.
We will gladly offer a refund or store credit in exchange for any items returned within 30 days of the original order, as long as the items are still sealed in new condition. We cannot accept returns of opened or used items. Return shipping is the responsibility of the customer.
