Areaware, the Brooklyn-based product design company that collaborated with the Parsons in Spring 2014 on the third-year product design studio Small Things Matter, led by SCE faculty Daniel Michalek, has introduced BFA Product Design senior Daniel Martinez’s Prism, a glass object that can function as both a paperweight and a magnifying glass. Prism is available at the MoMA Store. It was inspired by Wikimedia Foundation’s efforts to foster and disseminate free multilingual education.
