Dymaxion Quilt

Haptic Lab | Dymaxion Quilt
Haptic Lab, an interdisciplinary design studio founded by Brooklyn architect Emily Fischer is offering a Dymaxion Map Quilt with a percentage of proceeds going to BFI. The Dymaxion Projection is the only flat map of the entire surface of the Earth that reveals our planet as one island in one ocean, without any visually obvious distortion of the relative shapes and sizes of the land areas, and without splitting any continents. It was developed by Buckminster Fuller who “by 1954, after working on the map for several decades,” finally realized a “satisfactory deck plan of the six and one half sextillion ton Spaceship Earth.”
