Golden section (divine proportion) finder
Pocket size golden section finder helps you find aesthetically pleasant proportions. This handy section finder is made of translucent laser etched acrylic, which allows you to look through it to work out proportions rather than by eye.
The theory of the ‘Golden Section’ also known as the ‘Divine Proportion’ describes the relationship between two perfectly symmetrical forms. It refers to the perfect proportions often found in nature and it has been historically used by artists, designers and architects to define beauty in a theoretical rather than intuitive way.
Designed by Parson and Charlesworth and produced by Areaware, a design studio founded in Chicago by British husband and wife team Tim Parsons and Jessica Charlesworth. After running independent practices they joined forces to pursue projects that explore the practical, rhetorical, poetic and speculative possibilities of object making.
