In 1946, Buckminster Fuller patented a map of Earth showing geographic information without breaks in any of the continental contours, or any visible distortion of the relative shapes or sizes of the land masses. In 1954, the Dymaxion Projection was hand drawn by architect, Shoji Sadao, the cartographer and collaborator behind the map. In this piece, designer Brendan Ravenhill has reconfigured Fuller’s map as a magnetic folding globe, a representation of Earth that easily transitions from flat to three dimensional. Fold it to form a geometric globe or unfold to reveal our flattened planet. A very popular gift!
