Chronotebook Wins Design Award for Promoting Nonlinear Time

Most scheduling books and calendaring software apps are way too linear — they list each task in the day one after the other, leaving little room for improvisation in your future plans. How do you plan your schedules if you want to live on cyclical time? Singaporean company Orcadesign has the answer: it's Chronotebook, a winner of the quirky Muji Award for design.

Chronotebook Wins Design Award for Promoting Nonlinear Time

The Chronotebook allows you to plot your day as a series of tasks that radiate outward from a circle that's sort of like an analog clock. Each set of pages start with two circles representing AM and PM, and users are invited to draw in their events as they see fit. As somebody who fetishizes office supplies and do-to lists, I'm curious to know whether having a cyclic time day planner makes a difference.
