Dome Life is an homage to the geodesic dome – Buckminster Fuller’s iteration of a modern, democratic, sustainable and radical shelter dreamed up 70 years ago – and this crazy idea that tomorrow can be better than yesterday.

Dome Version A, Type 1: Tiny Dome – Geodesic domes are designed to scale in size – from housing an artificial biosphere to forming the climbable jungle gyms of our youth. Here, we scale it down to a model for communal living built around miniature furniture, which serves as a companion to Entireworld’s Tiny T-Shirts.
