The Columbus Ravensburg Illuminated Desktop Globe features the signature DUORAMA map. The dynamic map is displayed on the 13 inch acrylic globe, which rests elegantly on a high gloss chrome base and flatly styled semi-meridian, making the whole unit 17 inches tall. The world globe appears to be effortlessly supported by the minimal chrome base, which adds a dash of contemporary style to this beautiful globe. The DUORAMA technology displays a physical map of Earth when the model is not illuminated. The striking 3D shading of the planet's topographical information stand out on this finely produced, hand applied map. When the light inside the Ravensburg is activated, the Columbus desktop globe takes on aspects of a political map, which differentiates the borders of the planet's countries.
This illuminated globe fits nicely on a coffee table, desk, tabletop, bookshelf or night stand. The wonder of this reliably designed Columbus globe shines no matter where it is placed. The family owned manufacturing company has been making globes for over 100 years. In addition to their knack for masterful construction, Columbus has also built their reputation on innovation. The Columbus Ravensburg Illuminated Desktop Globe is a quintessential example of how sophisticated design combines with impressive DUORAMA technology to create a sterling world globe for the home, workplace or school.
I really like this Ravensburg. It has great style and is incredibly well made. I totally recommend this to anyone looking for a cool globe with a physical map.
