The Columbus Hannover Duorama Illuminated Floor Globe 16 Inch shines with a sharp, contemporary design. The 16 inch glass world globe reaches 47 inches tall on the sleek, stainless steel and chrome pedestal stand. The two toned silver metal scheme contributes to the floor globe's modern style. Additionally, a cylindrical semi-meridian holds the sphere at a 23.5 degree angle.
The Hannover features Columbus' extraordinary DUORAMA map, which displays an abundance of geographic information. When the world globe's light is off, the naturalistic colors of the planet's landforms and oceans are depicted, along with the earth's uneven ocean floor and epic mountain ranges. When the floor globe is illuminated, the map takes on some political qualities. The divisions of the countries become more apparent on the continents, and the vast number of up-to-date place names takes center stage.
The floor globe is a handmade work of art. The glass ball was hand blown by Columbus' skilled craftspeople. The DUORAMA map was then cut into gores and glued to the sphere in a time intensive manner that requires years of experience to execute. The artisanal manufacturing is what ensures the Columbus globes extraordinary quality. The modern elegance of the Columbus Hannover Duorama Illuminated Floor Globe 16 Inch makes it an essential addition to the home or office! Find the perfect spot in the room for this silver and blue world globe to add a dash of color and cartographical wonder to the decor.
I was very pleased when my hannover globe arrived in the mail yesterday. The beautiful stainless steel base is even more impressive in real life and the glass globe is more luminous when lit up than i imagined. World class model.
