About This Globe

The ultimate furniture accessory.

240 Swarovski crystals are individually heated and embellished into the globe’s surface by hand. This includes capital cities and major cities across the globe. These crystals sparkle like diamonds either when reflecting sunlight or when the globe’s light passes through them. The cut of each crystal allows them to reflect different colours of light as the globe is rotated creating an incredible multi-colour glittering effect that cannot be captured by photography or video.

The globe ball itself is highly detailed, showing political country boundaries when the light is off and physical features such as mountains when lit. The quality of the hand-laid mapping is such that the mountain ranges appear 3D when the globe is lit. The map itself is hand-laid onto the ball in strips of paper called gores which are sprayed with a protective gloss coating. This is the only way to ensure perfect accuracy whilst maintaining maximum detail and colour quality. Only the most premium globes are hand-laid, making this a rare and desirable feature. At 40cm in diameter, the globe is large enough to make an impressive visual statement without being too large to fit on most desks. This Duo model uses traditional blue ocean colours presented in a professional way to appeal to all ages.

The base and ring are made from chromed steel. This adds to the premium quality of the globe as well as allowing the southern hemisphere to be reflected in the base, creating a unique effect when the globe is lit.

This magnificent globe is a real statement and represents the perfect combination of beauty and functionality, creating truly exceptional furniture accessory.

Illumination is by cable with an LED bulb, supplied ready to use. Simply plug in and enjoy.

This globe, like all Columbus globes, works with an optional interactive pen. This wireless and updatable pen talks to you with details about each country or area touched with it on the globe’s surface. It also plays each country’s national anthem and plays videos on your smartphone. This is an additional product that can be added to your order on this page when adding to basket.
