The Duo Alba 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.

The pale colors of the switched off globe (predominantly white) contrast with the warm and clear tones of the illuminated globe.

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 sheets. 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.
