A beloved, unique calendar designed by Five Metal Shop, which combined the traditional Chinese calendar with modern design.
Traditionally, the Chinese calendar is used to determine the days of traditional festivals. It still serves as a daily guide with tips until today in most Asian society, such as indications of good days for moving, farming and ploughing, getting married and so on. Besides date, month and year, this calendar consists the date in the lunar calendar, along with the traditional 24 Solar Terms, and times of sunrise and sunset for the day.
Tearing off a page after each day ends is a typology unique in Asia. This calendar is designed as a tear off calendar, which you could tear down each page day-by-day easily. After tearing the pages off, you could store them in the beautify printed box, or use them to adorn your pages or outgoings. This is one of the ways design touches and enriches our everyday life.
