Product information "Mini Globe COLUMBUS DUO AZZURRO Ø 12 cm / 5 inch"

Mini globe made of acrylic glass, Ø 12 cm, hand-coated, stainless steel base and meridian. 

Water covers 71 percent of our planet. The Pacific Ocean is larger than the area of all continents taken together. Actually, our planet should be called Water instead of Earth. The DUO AZZURRO immerses itself in the beauty of the oceans. Non-illuminated, one sinks into the deep blue of the seas, and the continents' radiant blue shading creates accentuations. Illuminated, the globe reveals the sight of the oceans' entire ground structure: Depths, sea basins, volcanoes, and seamounts as high as the Alps. Honored with the Book Award of the travel fair ITB 2016, the AZZURRO offers depth in the literal sense.

The most dangerous of all world views is the world view of people who have not looked at the world, Alexander von Humboldt once said. With the COLUMBUS MINI Globes, the world effortlessly fits in your hand, yet their maps convey a maximum of cartographical information.

A complex 120 halftone printing process ensures that even the smallest writings are crystal clear and sharply depicted. Hand-coated map segments guarantee the highest precision in the entire product. The result: A world view to go.

The steadfast detail: A globe needs a firm hold to unfold its full appeal. The MINI globe rests securely on a matted stainless steel base and rotates in a stainless steel meridian.
