The handsome Columbus Bremen Duo Alba Illuminated Floor Globe 16 Inch leaves a bold impression with its startling contemporary design. The 16 inch glass ball stands 47 inches atop the tall Wenge wood and steel pedestal base. A cylindrical semi-meridian carries the sphere at a 23.5 angle, like the tilt of the earth itself. The combination of the wood and stainless steel base is an attractive base for the world globe.
The modern Duo Alba map sets the pale pastel tones of the countries on the political map against a sleek whitish-grey ocean background. Packed with place names, shipping routes and water currents, the Duo Alba is a modern marvel. Flip on this illuminated globe's light switch and watch as its radiant colors burst forth, and aspects of a physical map become apparent over the floor globe's surface.
The 16 inch glass sphere was hand blown by Columbus' experienced craftspeople. The glass allows the illumination to radiate with increased clarity. After handcrafting the sphere, the trained artisans then manually cut and glued the map to the ball. The artisanal qualities of the Bremen Duo Alba make each floor globe an unforgettable decorative accent. Soak up the irresistible design of the Columbus Bremen Duo Alba Illuminated Floor Globe 16 Inch! Whether intended for the house or office, these artistic Columbus globes will become the centerpiece of any room's decor.
