The brilliant cartographers at family owned German company have struck gold again with the Columbus Freiburg Illuminated Desktop Globe. The signature DUORAMA map is complimented by the handsome Makassar wood base. The wooden stand gives the world globe an attractive element to contrast against, with the natural hues of the physical map. With the DUORAMA map, the Freiburg shows off the organic earth tones and ocean shades when the globe is not lit. However, flip the switch to illuminate the Columbus desktop globe and watch as some aspects of a political map also take shape on the surface of the acrylic sphere. Both maps have their own signature qualities, and together combine to make an exciting synergy on the Freiburg illuminated globe.
Be enthralled by this brilliant product of Columbus' craftsmanship. Having designed and manufactured globes for over 100 years, the legendary German company remains a thriving family business. Besides their reliable design and tasteful aesthetics, the Columbus desktop globes are known for technological innovations. The Columbus Freiburg Illuminated Desktop Globe is 13 inches in diameter. However, with the base and flatly styled semi-meridian included, the entire unit stands 17 inches tall. The DUORAMA map coupled with the stately Makassar wood base makes this an excellent choice for your tastefully decorated home, office or school.
My globe arrived swiftly, thanks! I like this one for its wooden base, which looks great in my office.
