One designer that caught my eye at the design fair was Hiroyuki Miyake, a product designer/architect who designs interesting items and beautiful spaces. We were drawn to his stand when he introduced us to a calendar in the form of a tape measure, where one year fills two sides of the tape - 6 months on each side. He has also designed interesting seating ideas, like the "Frogs" table and chairs (where the sitter becomes a frog once sitting on the lilly pad seat) and the "Bug" stools that look like a chain of ants when placed one behind the other. You can see more of his work here.
The calendar works as a retractable tape measure.
Each day is a centimetre.
Each side of the tape measure represents six months of the year.
