The Columbus Columbus Hannover Royal Illuminated Floor Globe 16 Inch contrasts its classically colored map with the contemporary style of the metal stand. The 16 inch glass Columbus globe stands 47 inches tall on the silver stainless steel and chrome pedestal base. The tubular semi-meridian cradles the sphere at its 23.5 degree angle. The alternating shining and brushed steel stand updates the ROYAL map with a decidedly modern bent.
The Hannover globe features Columbus' signature ROYAL map, which roots its design in a nostalgic sensibility. The beige ocean color is enhanced by the multicolored mosaic of the political map's landmasses. Despite the antique map style, the place names are all contemporary. As the floor globe becomes illuminated, the political map exhibits some aspects of a physical one..
The glass globe was hand blown by the German manufacturer's skilled artisans. The Royal map was then cut into gores and applied to the sphere by the craftspeople. The manual manufacturing style ensures that every model receives the attention it deserves and lives up to Columbus' impressive reputation. The blend of the nostalgic with the modern on the Columbus Hannover Royal Illuminated Floor Globe 16 Inch makes it a striking addition to the home or office decor. Placed in the perfect place, this Columbus globe is bound to enthrall with its stellar design and superb cartography.
I chose this globe because it's a blend of the modern with the classic. The stylish contemporary base is a really attractive complement to the nostalgic map, which is beautiful when lit up.
