Globes are not all the same

 

Globes have long been the protagonists of furniture, fitting with style into any environment. Even today, these objects represent an ideal complement of taste for living rooms and professional offices.

 

The market offers a wide range of models, from the simplest created for teaching to the most sophisticated and elegant. To differentiate the globes are not only the maps or the target to which they are intended, for example children or adults, but above all the quality. If you are looking for a quality globe, built in an artisanal way with valuable elements and materials of the highest profile, you need to consider making an economic investment, aware of the fact that an object of this magnitude remains unchanged over time.

 

What factors to consider when choosing a globe?

Materials

The choice of materials is the factor that most differentiates the globes on the market. The use of solid and robust raw materials makes the object not only more durable over time, but also more aesthetically appealing. The Afrodite model, for example, is entirely made of beech wood lacquered in mahogany color, while the map is a faithful reproduction of the 16th century. The gold leaf finishes, rigorously applied by hand by expert craftsmen, embellish everything. Ideal for those who love to be surrounded by refined and high-value elements.

 

Craftsmanship and attention to detail

Attention to detail and artisan professionalism are key elements on which to focus in order to have a unique piece of value. Although technology offers increasingly cutting-edge tools in the industrial field, the artisan spirit must always work by hand on the finishes and decorations. This is our company mission: we use new technologies as a support to an artisan process that has been handed down since the 1950s and which, even today, is the element that distinguishes our products.

 

Physical, political, contemporary or historical map?

Most globes feature political or physical maps.

 

Political cartography is usually characterized by bright colors and shows the emerged lands of the planet, divided according to state borders. In addition, navigation routes, current directions and latitude and longitude grids may be present.

 

Physical maps renounce to political information to highlight the earth's natural features. Characterized primarily by naturalistic greens, yellows, and browns of the continental masses, they also contain detailed three-dimensional shading that illustrates the world's highest mountain ranges and the deepest ocean valleys.

 

Within these two macro-categories we find the historical maps, which remind us how the world was divided many years ago, for example in the 16th or 18th century, and the contemporary ones, as on the Aries globe, which instead show us the current subdivision of the globe merging with the latest design trends.

 

Globe for display or teaching

Globes have long been an indispensable educational tool in classrooms. In fact, they are often used to support teachers during geography lessons.

 

But who says that an educational globe can't also be an exhibition? The Vasco da Gama model, for example, combines style and functionality. Thanks to the elegant design, characterized by the beech wood column resting on the matching base, and the detailed globe, it is no longer necessary to choose between beauty and utility!

 

Why choose a quality globe?

Choosing a quality globe is the right option not only for the purchase of furnishing globes, but also for other purposes and uses. Elegant materials and artisanal production guarantee a durable object that, in addition to never going out of fashion, acquires more and more value over time, often becoming an heirloom handed down from generation to generation.
