This Columbus Hannover Duo Illuminated Floor Globe is a contemporary styled floor globe of the highest order. When it comes to quality, there is no other globe manufacturer that comes close to touching Columbus. One look at the Hannover and it is obvious why. This floor globe is a stunner. The hand blown 16 inch glass sphere is held 47 inch tall by the chrome and brushed stainless steel pedestal stand. The dashing combination of the shining chrome and the smooth stainless steel lends the globe a sharp airless feel. A cylindrical semi-meridian holds the world globe. The minimal metallic stand lends the Hannover its unique state-of-the-art design.
Covering the sizable, crystalline globe is a hand cut and hand applied DUO map. The Columbus ethos of hand-crafted globes is embodied by this carefully constructed work. With the DUO technology, when the globe is not illuminated, a political map is displayed. Flip a switch to set the world globe aglow, and the political map takes on subtle qualities of a physical one. Suddenly, the sumptuous texture of the earth's varied surface becomes faintly visible, as these organic details seem to magically appear. To experience over 100 years of expert craftsmanship, pick up this Columbus Hannover Duo Illuminated Floor Globe, which adds a contemporary edge to a classically beautiful globe.
I like the modern feel of this stand and map. The silver and blue color scheme looks even better in real life.
