This model is a particular masterpiece of traditional globe manufacturing combined with innovative technology.
The manufacturing of a hand-blown 21 inch large crystal glass globe is a true challenge that only a handful of glass artisans worldwide can conquer.
This is why it takes many days until the selected materials can be turned into a cartographic and optical masterpiece with a great deal of experience, ability and passion.
The cartography is hand-papered. This technique, handed down from generation to generation, has only been mastered by COLUMBUS.

The passion and the craft required to produce this model, its stately size, simple elegance and extraordinary quality make it something truly special - unique and impossible to imitate -.

The Duo map.

The political * map (switched off) shows the various countries of the earth in many matched colours.
The physical * map (switched on) shows the mountains, the plates, the plains and sea-beds.

The impression of relief shown by the illuminated map is really astonishing.
We don't just print our globes; we strive to create an incredibly deep, flawless shine. It all starts in our state-of-the-art 'clean printing room', where our craftsmen work just with superior acrylic sheets. Bringing in all kind of papers is strictly forbidden, because it would bring in fine paper dust particles which could later be attracted in the printing process. Printing up to 24 successive layers of colors, there's a curing process between each layer, along with an inspection and careful cleaning. Once the printing is complete, a high gloss clear coat layer is applied over the entire map, than it is sent back for inspection to our cartographic department.

Unmistakable COLUMBUS cartography: Splendour of Elegance.

Paul Oestergaard created Columbus in 1909.
Torsten Oestergaard

Established 1909 in Germany, COLUMBUS is the oldest globe manufacturer in the World.

COLUMBUS quickly became and continue to be the World's best-selling line of luxury globes ( Chaplin chose in 1940 the Columbus globe "Die Erde" for his world famous film).
Popular features such as internal illumination (1948), dual-mapping (1955), the Day and Night Globe (1972) were all innovations introduced by Columbus globes.

While being innovators and leaders, Columbus is also focused on preservation of traditional globe manufacturing processes such as the exclusive mouth-blowing of crystal spheres and the hand laminating of cartography.
