Manuel Raeder's 2016 Wall Calendar.
Agendas / wall calendars are an ongoing project that Studio Manuel Raeder has been doing since 2003. The idea of this series of time
storage devices, is to focus on questioning different methods of how we organise, in a personal or none personal way our time. Formats, sizes and distributions systems vary each year. This hanging system was first invented by Manuel Raeder and published for the Loose Leaf wall calendar in 2006. To set up your Loose Leaf simply fix nails in distances of 12 cm in your wall and hang sheets according to your preference. This allows you to constantly re-arrange your months, giving endless combinations for your interior. Each month is designed by a guest artist or duo.
