Counting Down The Days...
Never seemed all that modern, or stylish, so I decided to take the old-fashioned advent calendar and reimagine it as a piece of modern sculpture. It should be just as functional as the old one – but a lot more interesting to look at for 25 days.
This modern take on a holiday classic is constructed entirely of MDF wood, pinned together, and glued for stability. Each colored tile covers a small chamber where candy or a small gift awaits some lucky person every day through Christmas.
The color of each day's tile attempts to mirror the feeling of excitement that grows from the beginning of the month to the end. Thus, the early days are cool colors, but by Christmas day, the colors are vibrant warm colors.
