The Seed Salon

Chuck Hoberman is perhaps best known for inventing the Hoberman sphere, a geodesic globe that can expand up to five times its diameter. An accomplished designer, architect, artist, and engineer, Hoberman has pioneered the field of transformation technology in service of such diverse areas as medicine, architecture, and toy-making. He won the Chrysler Design Award in 1997 and his creations have been displayed around the world, including at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
