This Italian floor standing bar & globe cabinet features a beautiful, museum-quality 18th-century reproduction map that is available in three new stunning colors that are hot off the Zoffoli press: olive green, antique white, and honey brown.

While the exterior of the globe sphere of this floor globe bar cabinet has an abundance of geographical references and is a faithful reproduction of the eighteenth century, the Exceptional Explora’s interior is adorned with ornamental and mythological motifs that will take you to faraway lands, ancient naval routes, and exciting journeys to unexplored territories.

The bar cabinet inside the 16-inch globe sphere can hold 2 to 3 bottles and approximately 9 glasses. Additional bottles and glassware can be stored on the lovely base shelf which features a beautiful and stylized illustration of a wind rose. A wind rose is a graphic tool used by meteorologists to give a succinct view of how wind speed and direction are typically distributed at a particular location.

Another unique feature of the Exceptional Explora floor standing bar & globe is its graduated semi-meridian. The structure is stained and varnished the same color as the floor stand, but it also features a section that mimics the base color of the globe map, creating a lovely contrast that is further accentuated by the brass-colored metal knob at the top of the semi-meridian. This is also true of the equatorial ring, which features signs of the zodiac.

The hand-turned spiral legs of solid beech wood of the floor standing bar & globe are stained a rich, lovely mocha color that is in charming contrast to the globe map, regardless of which of the three map colors you have chosen. The floor stand of the bar globe is equipped with casters for easy mobility.

The Explora bar globe has been hand-finished by master craftsmen in Italy at the Zoffoli plant, a family business that has been handing the craft down from generation to generation, from father to son.

Image of Seasons by Cellarius who inspired the Explora floor standing bar & globeAccording to Zoffoli, the Italian manufacturer, the Explora’s motifs and illustrations were inspired by the Harmonia Macrocosmica, a star atlas written by Andreas Cellarius and published in 1660 by Johannes Janssonius. For its importance in the history of celestial cartography, often described as the most beautiful celestial atlas ever published, the Harmonia Macrocosmica is considered one of the notable masterworks from the Golden Age of Dutch/Netherlandish cartography (c. 1570s–1670s).

The first part of the atlas contains copper plate prints depicting the world systems of Claudius Ptolemy, Nicolaus Copernicus, and Tycho Brahe. At the end are star maps of the classical and further constellations, the latter ones as introduced by Julius Schiller in his Coelum stellatum christianum of 1627.

Here’s what Zoffoli says about the Explora, its latest addition: White like the ice of Greenland, Green like the Amazon rainforest and Red like the parched earth of the Grand Canyon. The Explora globe is a journey through the colours and the atmospheres of the places you dream. You can touch with your hands remote places and imagine being there. Close your eyes, immerse yourself in the sounds and scents that surround you, in the flavors of faraway lands and cultures, and let yourself be carried away…
