The Columbus Hannover Duorama Illuminated Floor Globe is a modern styled model. When it comes to quality, there is no other globe manufacturer that comes close to touching the 100 year old family business. One look at the German company's world globe and it is clear why. This floor globe is stellar. The hand blown 16 inch sphere is held 47 inch tall by the chrome and brushed stainless steel pedestal stand. This tasteful combination of the steel in the base lends the globe a sleek, futuristic feel. A cylindrical half-meridian holds the globe at a 23 degree angle, mimicking Earth's tilt. The almost bodiless metallic stand gives the Hannover a one of a kind, contemporary design.
The Hannover showcases the Columbus’ DUORAMA map. The brother of the DUO map, the DUORAMA exhibits a physical map of Earth when not illuminated. Flip on the model's light switch and aspects of a political map subtly emerge on the globe’s surface, which highlights the contemporary boundaries of Earth’s nations. The naturalistic colors of the physical map become more vivid and colorful when the floor globe is illuminated. To experience over 100 years of quality German craftsmanship, choose this Columbus Hannover Duorama Illuminated Floor Globe, which adds a dash of modern style to a timeless model.
The Duorama map is amazing. It changes when it becomes illuminated. I also love the simplicity of the sleek steel base. 5 stars.
