In 1946, Buckminster Fuller patented a map of Earth’s flattened surface, free of the visual distortions and divisions that result from portraying the world as a spherical globe. Later adapted into a geometric globe, the Dymaxion Project became the most accurate portrayal of the Earth’s surface, and with the Dymaxion Folding Globe, you can admire a miniature version of this groundbreaking map. Eye-catching and innovative, this is a sophisticated marriage of cartography and design worthy of any home, school or office.
Featuring a design created in collaboration with the Buckminster Fuller Institute, the Dymaxion Folding Globe is available in Satellite or Black & White styles and is constructed from synthetic paper and magnets. Assembled globe measures approx. 8.26cm x 7.67cm x 9.47cm.
