The Greek creator Minas was first and foremost an engineer, he liked to invent and create all kinds of objects. He designed furniture, porcelain, a watch for Georg Jensen, houses and so on.

 

In 2004, Minas dreamed up this magnifying glass mounted as a pendant. Ingeniously, it is not round but oval, and so rotating it facilitates the vertical reading of Japanese for example.
