East Meets West Lundunar Kort Globe
Launching in 2013, the studio have produced these limited edition bespoke globes. Inspired by the original Lundunar Kort print which is comprised of thousands of layers of animals, leaves and birds; however the map had to be made for the intended sphere as precise alignment is requisite to ensure a continuous visual treat.
The globe was then made in the time honoured manner of applying 12 printed gores to a sphere, the same way it has been done since 1507.
The base is made from reclaimed timber and the finial is a salvaged chess piece that has played its part in numerous battles and is now taking a well deserved rest, both of which certifying the product's sustainability.
