Work In Progress : The Upside Down Globe in Taupe

One of the less frequently ordered globes in our collection, we last made one for a customer in Brazil.

Read about the upside down globe in progress when we were visited by Hemispheres.

The Upside Down Globe sits on three semi-hidden roller bearings which allow a fluid 360 degree spin in a luxurious movement by hand. The globe is balanced so that the Southern Hemisphere will always sit uppermost. The base is designed by the team who made the accommodation pods for the British Antarctic Survey and brought to life by heritage technicians from Aston Martin who skillfully fabricate the aluminium stand, creating a brushed finish.

At the time when we started- no one had made an upside-down globe as written about on Clearing Customs…  we are very proud to have been what feels like the first.

The Upside Down Curve is available in all colours but Taupe has proven popular with the modern Aluminium base.
