The Columbus Kempten Illuminated Desktop Globe adds stately grace to any surface it rests on. The beautiful Makassar wood base supports this world globe with a stainless steel flat style semi-meridian. The globe itself is 13 inches in diameter, but it reaches 17 inches with the base included. The wooden elements in the stand make it a compatible match to other furniture. The Kempten features two maps in one globe with the innovative DUO technology. When the bulb inside the desktop globe is off, the Columbus model displays a political map. The pastel shades of the different nations contrast colorfully with the light blue hue of the ocean.
When the world globe is illuminated though, it showcases qualities of a physical map. The earth's relief becomes subtly visible with light. Also, the depth and shallowness of the ocean becomes faintly visible through the changes in the lightness of the blue shade. This Columbus Kempten Illuminated Desktop Globe is an extraordinary addition to your bookshelf or desk at the workplace, where the wood base adds a mature touch to an otherwise modern marvel. The Kempten would also thrive in a home environment. Find time slip away while investigating the wealth of geographical information contained in this exceptional German crafted desktop globe!
