For over 100 years, Columbus has been producing the finest world globes in the industry. The masterful artistry that the German company has cultivated in that time continues to produce light up globes of the highest order. The Columbus Lindau Illuminated Desktop Globe is no exception in the manufacturer's long history of quality manufacturing. The Lindau is built with Columbus' DUO technology. The DUO features aspects of two maps laid on top of one another. When the world globe is dark, the colorful configuration of Earth's political map is featured. Illuminate the desktop globe with the flip of a switch and some of the planet's physical characteristics become visible on the globe.
The map undergoes over a dozen layers in the printing process to bring out the vibrant colors and exacting detail, which is then hand applied by Columbus' expert craftspeople. Longitude and latitude are gridded across the model in a thin blue color. Handsome black script labels the place names on this geographically rich Columbus illuminated globe. The 13 inch Columbus Lindau Illuminated Desktop Globe stands 17 inches tall with the brushed stainless steel base included. The flat style semi-meridian which holds the Columbus globe is a minimal compliment to the piece itself. The beauty of this thoughtfully designed world globe shines brilliantly.
This is my favorite globe. I just got it and I'm already in love! I like turning it on and watching the map transform
