Introducing… new colours!!

We have added Champagne, Charcoal and Pistachio to the Mini Desk Globe family.. we chose these gorgeous colours specifically to compliment the new Albion bases… the latest addition to the desk globe range. The Albion’s sleek profile allows us to hand-turn the most select hardwoods each with a unique character and intricate grain. This exclusive collection features strictly limited edition runs which means we can showcase rarer woods whilst respecting their origin.

The Albion features the same innovative roller bearing mechanism as our other desk globes permitting 360 degree rotation in all directions. Polished aluminium feet finish the base along with our personalised engraved disks offered as standard.

This African hardwood polishes to a deep lustrous red hue thanks to its particularly dense and heavy nature. Umber tones run through the veins of this base to create a beautiful marbled appearance.
