Jean-Pierre Vitrac Imbroglio desk calendar

As we’ve just featured a desk, it seems a good time to mention one of the coolest desk accessories you can buy – the Imbroglio desk calendar, originally designed in 1973 by French industrial designer Jean-Pierre Vitrac.

This is the freestanding version of the Imbroglio, which uses a panel made from powder-coated steel featuring screen-printed graphics and a plastic, magnetic cursor. The plastic cursor frames and defines the numbers 1 – 31, so you always know what day it is. And as it doesn’t do years, there’s no reason to buy a new calendar every year – just the one will do.

You can pick one up in red or grey for a very reasonable £19.95.
