Stendig Calendar 2022

Created by legendary Italian designer Massimo Vignelli in 1966, the Stendig remains one of the best examples of 1960s modernist design, featuring two of the movement’s most iconic creations – Swiss typeface Helvetica and the Grid. Soon after launch, the calendar entered into the permanent collection of the MoMA, New York, where it remains on display to this day.


A true modernist, Vignelli is widely credited for bringing European Modernism to the United States. He was an advocate of functionality in design, favouring a minimalist aesthetic and basing his creations on real user needs.

Throughout his career, Vignelli refused to adhere to any one design discipline. His work spanned different fields from branding to package design, furniture design, public signage and more. Vignelli partnered with some of the world’s biggest brands from American Airlines, to IBM, Bloomingdales, Ford and Knoll; though he is perhaps most famous for his 1971 re-design of the New York Subway’s sign system, still used by millions every day.

Vignelli’s design is simple, yet bold, printed on 122cm x 92cm sheets of high quality, 160gsm paper, which alternate between black and white background with each passing month. Sheets are detachable, designed to be removed at the end of each month. Previous months’ sheets make excellent wrapping paper.

Up-cycling old sheets | Once the month is over, sheets can be detached from the calendar through a perforated join. Previous months’ sheets make excellent wrapping paper for birthdays or even Christmas.

A feature of any room, the Stendig’s clean, minimalist aesthetic makes it suitable for any room in the house – whether the home office, the living room, the kitchen, the bedroom, or even the hall.
