Crystal Magnifying Glass
With the crystal magnifying glass by Areaware, characters and illustrations are easily enlarged - ideal for reading small letters in books, newspapers or instructions.
Small Things Matter
The Prisma magnifying glass by Areaware was developed by aspiring product designer Daniel Martinez for Areaware. It came about as part of the ‘Small Things Matter’ project, a collaboration between Areaware and the Parsons School of Design at The New School in New York.
Material & Function
The Prisma magnifying glass is made of optical K5 crystal glass. The magnifying glass is reminiscent of noble diamonds not just because of material but also on account of its shape, the latter being unusual with soft edges, making it an eye-catcher on any desk.
Using the glass Prisma, texts and images can be enlarged and thus comfortably read and examined. The glass magnifies letters and illustrations by 150%.
2% of proceeds from sales of the Prisma magnifying glass by Areaware is donated to the Wikimedia Foundation - a company that provides free access and transfer of knowledge through Wikipedia and other portals.
