Only a hundred years of German engineering and innovation could bring about the monumental Columbus Magnum Physical Illuminated Floor Globe. Let yourself be stunned by the sight of this enormous model, which impresses with its precise geographical information along with its expert design and tasteful aesthetics from the world’s oldest globe manufacturer. This impressively large globe is 30.5 inches in diameter and stands 50 inches high with the base included.
The stand that supports the Magnum is a curved wishbone shape. The brushed stainless steel of the base gives this floor globe a decidedly contemporary flair. It is a feat of modern engineering that a stand so thin and sparsely designed can effortlessly support such a large globe. A 360 degree cylindrical meridian surrounds the gimbal-mounted sphere, meaning it can be swiveled up and down to investigate a particular area of interest.
This Columbus model features the company’s physical map. The planet's vast oceans are recreated in a rich blue color. With meticulously rendered 3D shading, the underwater ridges and basins are shown with astonishing detail. White text labels landmarks like the “Ease Pacific Rise.” The 3D shading extends to the landmasses themselves, which show the planet’s major mountain ranges in miraculous detail, along with the natural green, brown and yellow tones of Earth. Turn on the world globe's internal light bulb and watch as the stunning cartography is projected into the room with its radiant colors.
Nobody can walk by this magnificent Columbus Magnum Physical Illuminated Floor Globe without stopping for an investigation. The wow-factor is off the charts! The beautiful DUORAMA map is showcased on this marvel with ferocious colors and luminous geographical splendor.
