The Kiel Globe by Columbus

The exquisite Columbus Kiel 16 Inch Illuminated Glass Desktop Globe stuns with its brilliant design and artisanal construction. The hand blown glass sphere is 16 inches in diameter but stands 20 inches tall when cradled by the brushed stainless steel base. A tubular half-meridian frames the blue ocean world globe.

The Kiel features Columbus' signature DUO map. When the desktop globe is not illuminated, the political map is displayed, however, with the flip of the light switch, the physical map comes alight. The world globe's illumination features brilliant colors that fill up a room with their warm tones. While the political map highlights the national divisions that break up landmasses into patchwork of pastel shades, the physical map showcases the planet's rugged topography with shading that illustrates the tall mountains and rough ocean floor.

The meticulous German craftsmanship and design means that this desktop globe is a handmade work of art. Columbus is, to this day, the only manufacturer that still hand blows glass globes. That allows their world globe's illumination and cartographical detail to burst forth in great clarity. Furthermore, the Kiel's DUO map was hand cut and applied piece by piece. The Columbus Kiel 16 Inch Illuminated Glass Desktop Globe is a beautiful decorative accent to a tabletop surface in the home or office. Put this world globe on a desk, bookshelf or coffee table and enjoy its design and cartographical merits for a lifetime to come!

Although some of our images show the place names in a foreign language all globes are in English.
