Product Description

Hoberman Sphere

Encourage engagement with this multicolor sphere that magically expands. The sphere expands to 30 inches from its collapsed size of 9.5 inches. Throw, bounce, spin, roll, or suspend it from the ceiling. Originally designed by Chuck Hoberman in 1994, the Hoberman sphere is included in the Museum’s collection. Ages 4 and up.

This product was offered in conjunction with MoMA's exhibition Century of the Child: Growing by Design, 1900-2000, an overview of the modernist preoccupation with children and childhood as a paradigm for progressive design thinking. The Museum's Department of Architecture and Design brings together school architecture, clothing, playgrounds, toys and games, children's hospitals and safety equipment, nurseries, furniture, and books to examine individual and collective visions for the material world of children.

Century of the Child

MoMA’s ambitious survey of 20th century design for children is the first large-scale overview of the modernist preoccupation with children and childhood as a paradigm for progressive design thinking. The exhibition brings together areas underrepresented in design history and often considered separately, including school architecture, clothing, playgrounds, toys and games, children’s hospitals and safety equipment, nurseries, furniture, and books.
