London design studio Vitamins is comprised of just a handful of people, but their schedules are unfailingly full. To let the entire office keep track of each other’s schedules, they designed something half wonderful and half crazy: a LEGO wall calendar.
The calendar presents three months at a time, one horizontal grey stripe for each month. Vertical rows on each month board lay out every day of that month. Each employee gets a LEGO minifig to denote which line on the calendar is theirs. Every project has an assigned color.
The team even designed a program to synchronize the calendar with the digital cloud-based version. Someone in the office snaps a picture of the calendar and the software automatically updates the digital calendar. It’s a creative mixture of tangible and digital information storage.
As far as unique calendars and totally awesome LEGO projects go, this one is aces. To be honest, though, it’s kind of inscrutable to us. For the people who work with it every day, however, it’s an effective and charming way to keep track of their own schedules while letting everyone else know where they are during work hours.
