25th exclusive wall calendar - ALPRA DESIGN 2019

limited edition 888 pcs, numbered and signed


The jubilee 25th ALPRA DESIGN calendar shows contrast to today's overcast world of shapes in a simple, elegant way - with balanced proportions, curves and edges, without exaggeration

ALPRA DESIGN calendar celebrates 25th anniversary

In 1994, when I was a young student and I created the first ALPRA DESIGN calendar, I did not think that a quarter of a century later I would be writing this text. The current jubilee calendar ALPRA DESIGN marks the first 25 years of growth and progress, and of efforts to attract loyal collectors who love cars, art and aesthetics.

Since its inception, the ALPRA DESIGN calendar has remained loyal to the globally unique theme of displaying a neutral automotive design. However, the car as such has changed considerably throughout history. Today it is saturated internally with abundance of functions, information and accessories, and on the outside with fractures, creases, slits and ornaments. At the same time, it is losing its former meaning and is becoming a digitized moving accommodation space. In the final phase, it will obviously become a self-moving object and will reach a true meaning of the word "automobile".

ALPRA DESIGN calendars represent a passion for cars as well as joy of driving and love for design. That is why this edition is not an "explosion" of digital effects and colours, but shows, in a simple and aesthetical manner, vehicles that look like cars, not traveling computers. Their shapes combine the curves and edges into a harmonious whole, without excesses. This purity is also reflected in bright colours that highlight the car and give it some "breathing" space. The lines in the background represent stylized Roman numbers of individual months of the year - a reminder of the past, which is almost forgotten, as will probably be the case for modern cars.



Calendar for automotive industry and collectors

First ALPRA DESIGN calendar was published in 1994 by ČZP Voranc (publisher). Since their first year calendars ALPRA DESIGN maintained a unique theme - neutral transportation design. During the years, they became calendars for collectors.  Each and every year calendars show different design approach. Therefore their regular customers always look forward to be surprised by new editions.



REVIEWS - Buyers know why they buy ALPRA DESIGN!

ALPRA DESIGN calendars attract specific customers who value the outstanding product, limited series and innovative design. Such a gift expresses respect for quality, design and a glimpse into the future. Most customers remain loyal after their first purchase. Some of them said why:

  • "Passion, sophistication, exclusivity, unobtrusive appearance that leaves a deep impression. I give these calendars to selected persons who also have such qualities!" Suzana Filipancic, Vice President of Corporate Development, GRAMMER AG.

  • "I purchase the ALPRA DESIGN calendar every year, because I support this high-quality design product, instead of wasting money for a pile of worthless New Year gifts, as is customary." Irena Hlede, architect, designer, journalist and executive director of the Slovenian Association for Sustainable Building.

  • "The ALPRA DESIGN calendar is unique and visionary, but at the same time it is very close to us, because it is created from the visions of our nearby Slovenian designer. These visions inspire us that we can also create and achieve our own visions in our work. And although calendars are often a gift for the New Year, this one is so special and exclusive that almost all of the copies given toour business partners, together with personal dedication, occupy an honorable place on the walls of their offices or at home." Vladimir Pogac, CEO, TURNA production and trade d.o.o.

  • "We have been giving the ALPRA DESIGN calendars to our special partners for many years, because they are distinguished by uniqueness. Low-volume is just an extra plus to stay faithful." Maja Spanzel, Head of Marketing, TAB d.d.

  • "This is not an ordinary calendar. Because: when you first see it and scroll through it, it strikes you and freezes you. It isfascinating! And it's not for everyone. This calendar is for people who need feast for the eyes. Like me." Irma Gnamus, CEO, ORFIS d.o.o.
