The tall Columbus Bremen Duo Illuminated Floor Globe 16 Inch exudes a stately, sophisticated style! The 16 inch glass sphere stands 47 inches high on its Wenge wood and steel pedestal base. A tubular half-meridian holds the world globe at a 23.5 angle atop the brown and silver colored stand. The alternating wood and brushed stainless steel lend the floor globe an unmistakably refined style.
This charismatic model features Columbus' signature DUO map. The blue ocean background is packed with cartographic information like shipping lanes and water current directions along with a latitude and longitude grid. The pale pastel colors of the continents are broken up into their political divisions and covered with place names. However, flip on the light switch of this illuminated globe and some qualities of a relief map become faintly apparent. The globe's vibrant hues fill up a room with light.
The 16 inch world globe is made of glass, which allows for clear illumination and cartography. Columbus' skilled artisans' hand-blow each glass sphere, and then manually cut and apply the DUO map. The handcrafted nature of the Bremen makes it an exceptional floor globe that is set to delight for a lifetime to come! Soak up the excellent style and detailed cartography of the Columbus Bremen Duo Illuminated Floor Globe 16 Inch. Whether headed for the office or home, this exemplary model is a sophisticated accent any decor.
I like the wood and steel stand of this globe. It's very impressive in real life and features a beautiful glass globe which impresses with its obviously top notch craftsmanship. Beautiful model.
