DodeCal is a wooden polyhedra calendar, designed with mathematical precision, hand-finished in high quality Cumbrian Beech.
A tactile, three dimensional object that combines functionality and contemporary design, DodeCal makes a welcome addition to any home or workplace.
Feel free to interact with the calendar on the right and give it a spin for yourself.
What started out as a quick idea scribbled in a notebook, after many prototypes, samples and trials, resulted in a partnership between 3 people all with very individual skill sets.
DodeCal is designed in London and manufactured deep in the hills of the Lake District, with timber sourced from from sustainably managed forests from across the world.
Our production process celebrates the union of modern design, traditional woodworking and digital technology.
Revealing the dodecahedron shape from a single block of material was one of the biggest challenges facing the team.
After much hard work, determination and the help of one team member’s Degree in Mathematics, we worked out how to masterfully slice the shape into reality.
Once roughly cut, the calendars get machine-sanded then individually hand-sanded with fine grade papers, before under going two coats of Osmo oil to create a smooth and sealed finish.
The dodecahedron is then mapped into the computer software, where each side is laser engraved, rotating the calendar 12 times by hand in-between each month.
The first DodeCals, made from a French sycamore, launched in October 2016 and sold out 7 days later. Due to popular demand we were able to produce another run of calendars, which sold out again in record time.
In our first year we shipped over 200 DodeCals to 22 different countries; it goes without saying we were blown away by the positive response and wonderful comments from happy customers, retailers and press.
We have since crafted DodeCals from American Cherry and English Oak woods, all of which is responsibly sourced by our timber suppliers who support sustainable forest management programmes.
The 2020 Edition of DodeCal is made from Beech wood which has a subtle red hue, sourced directly from where they are made in the Lake District, UK.
DodeCal comes wonderfully packaged in a custom made, die-cut box made from card stock that is FSC Certified and 100% Virgin ECF Fibre. The unique design, on both the inside and outside of the box, is printed with environmentally friendly water-based screen printing inks.
Beautifully made, nicely weighted and a joy to hold in the hand; DodeCal is a product made for those who value the fusion of craft, technology and design.
