Better than any other. Introduction to KAL
This minimalistic, perpetual wall calendar is made of an aluminum base and six double-sided paper sheets you can write on. It’s an essential everyday personal organizer. The convenient, carefully designed grid allows you to write down appointments, keep track of your schedule, and see everything at a glance – making plans has never been this easy.
KAL is functionally and visually simple. No unnecessary elements, no superfluous graphics, no pictures, no fast-aging styling – we aim for the timeless.
Created for planning
The KAL is a tool for planning your daily activities, jotting down reminders and establishing long-term goals. Its visual appearance is pared down to what’s essential, and the smart layout will help you stay on track and remember your important appointments.
The well-planned grid allows enough space for adding text, while remaining very readable, so you have an easy overview of your weekly or monthly plans.
Closed cycle. Designed to last
The KAL is built to last. The planned closed cycle and carefully designed form will allow you to use it year after year. We care about the planet, which is why we selected recyclable aluminum and carefully chose FSC- and PEFC-certified thick paper, for a sustainable, responsible, high-quality product. Towards the end of a year, simply order new pages and recycle the old ones. KAL is designed to last you a lifetime, and we’re sure you’ll come to depend on it!
Stay more analog
Our digital era provides a great number of apps and other productivity boosters, but we believe in the value of traditional time-planning tools. That’s why we wanted to work specifically on a wall calendar, analyzing which details and subtleties are essential for a truly great design.
Digital calendars typically overflow with requests and reminders, Kal is a space of infinite autonomy where the user chooses what to make time for.
The KAL is not just a typical planner. Its aesthetics and pleasure of use create an emotional response in the user. The KAL is not visually imposing, but it will surely be an important element of your home, elegantly complementing the decor. You’ll never tire of its look.
After the Kickstarter campaign we’ll launch an online shop, where you can order new month pages for 16$, or whole calendar sets. Visit www.kal-store.com
My name is Stanislaw, I'm an industrial designer from Warsaw, Poland. I run my own Umiar Studio which works for leading design brands, such as Ikea and Menu.

Risks and challenges
We are determined to deliver your KAL's by the end of the year, so that you can enjoy them as soon as possible. The KAL is a physical item, so of course manufacturing and shipping hazards can’t be completely ruled out, but we truly believe that the process will be made smoother by our experience in manufacturing, our knowledge of production techniques and above all our close relation with the producers.
Over the last three years we have worked with a small group of clients on testing the KAL design. Their valuable feedback has allowed us to continuously improve the KAL. All those hours spent on researching, testing, prototyping and discussing have helped us achieve an elegant, easy design that is complete and ready to produce.
We are committed to getting the KAL to all of you on time.
Thank you for your valuable support!
