The Stendig Calendar was designed by Massimo Vignelli in 1966, year in which was later included in the Design Collection of the MoMA in New York. Vignelli - who created a latter New York Subway map that would be used officially for at least a decade - thinks of practicality and modernism – in the neat, the diaphanous - in most of his works.
This calendar offers a straightforward, strong visual outlay combined with a very simple structure and use of the mandatory elements needed on an item of its type. Starting with Monday as the first day of the week, in European style, its design has made its outlay something recognizable and recognized in many professional fields, from personal offices to modern high-end enterprises as well as architecture and design firms.
Few calendars have mixed practicality and elitism in black & white as Stendig has, printed in such a big format. It automatically turns into the focal point of big spaces, breeding avant-garde, and convincing us at Malevich Garage that Kazimir himself would be proud of its pragmatism.
