Bon Voyage: Art

A mini-telescope for museum-goers

Every art lover deserves a little one-on-one time with the Venus de Milo. Or maybe it’s that other one they want to hit it off with — you know, the one with the funny smile. Yet no matter what time of day or what month of the year you visit a museum like the Louvre, you end up closer to another person’s head rather than an actual work of art. There’s simply no escaping the shear mass of tourists.

Get some of that private time you crave with ZoomArt, a mini telescope designed by Odo Fioravanti Design Studio. It magnifies any subject up to six times its size, perfect for picking up details — not just brush strokes or scantily-clad angels on frescos, but the curves and grooves carved into the stonework of an ancient facade in the city you’re visiting. It’s made up of interlocking cylinders with its focus adjusted manually. It’s only 80 milimetres long and weighs 55 grams. It has an objective lens diametre of 18 millimetres and a focus range of 145 centimetres. Available in black, light blue or orange. €40 with €15 standard shipping from Italy from palomarweb.com.
