Golden Section Finder

designed by Parsons & Charlesworth



Perfect proportions observed in nature often follow the theory of the golden section. The golden section is a number regularly found when calculating the ratio between the dimensions of natural and geometric forms. Historically, artists, designers and architects have used it as a means of defining beauty in a theoretical rather than intuitive way. Use the Golden Section Finder, a pocket sized gazing device, to locate the proportional perfection in your surroundings.
