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.

mark: 5 on 5. The globe is excellent, well made and detailed.
Stephen C. from DN1 2TE Doncaster (United kingdom)

mark: 5 on 5. This was a 50th birthday present and my partner is delighted with it. The difference in what shows when it is lit and not is fascinating. Also when lit it has a beautiful soft glow and looks great as a light source in the lounge.
Kay R. from So53 4nu Eastleigh (United kingdom)

mark: 4 on 5. Very nice. It would be good to be able to choose between gloss and matt finish.
