A Deployable Structure - HoberDome

HOBER DOME Is a Deployable Structure, which can be easily transported due to its ability to transform to a smaller volume. The concept was to move things along a sphere , therefore the form has been abstracted from Twist Sphere Toy designed by Chuck Hoberman. The Structure has a Pivot Mechanism through which it transforms in size. The HOBER DOME can be used for multiple temporary events which run for a day to 3-4 days. One can host exhibitions or art galleries, or promotional events. The product comes with a Kit of Parts by which one can deploy the structure.
