Tents Calendar by Aisha Al Sowaidi
This object (calendar) is inspired from the nomads and travels in the desert. The white marble tents could be placed and rearranged to set different dates on the wooden calendar, that resembles the land. This calendar invites the person to be a nomad of time, placing the tent on different dates, maybe a special memory from the past, or a promising date in the future or just setting it to the present day.
