The Gea Taurus is a large world globe bar with a current political map. It is different in size to the Virgo modern world globe bar, but it is nearly identical in design. They are part of the Gea Collection (Gaia in English) by the famous Italian manufacturer Zoffoli, a series of globes and bar globes made of high-quality materials with finely detailed ochre and burgundy current political/geographical maps and stylized shapes, showing current countries, major cities, capitals, and even ocean currents.

The Gea Taurus large world globe bar, slightly smaller than the Virgo in size, is equally elegant and superbly crafted while its girth still has a stunning impact. Its impressive modern world globe, encompassed by a beautiful full meridian, houses a drinks cabinet that can store 4 or 5 bottles and approximately 12 glasses and rotates to provide easy access to the glassware.

Additional bottles can be stored on the laminated lower base shelf decorated with a beautiful unique wind rose that blends perfectly with the illustrated Zodiac ring around the bar globe’s equatorial line. The Northern and Southern hemispheres of the world globe itself also rotate independently when the large world globe bar cabinet is open.

All Gea bar globes are easy to move from room to room because the hand-crafted solid hardwood legs are equipped with hidden casters for easy relocation.

The chestnut-colored stand and picturesque base harmonize superbly with the golden wheat and auburn shades that can be found on the exterior of the earth globe, a signature color combination that Zoffoli simply calls “Gea”.

Zoffoli has passed on the art of crafting world globes in Italy for over three generations. In addition to its celebrated antique-style replicas, it successfully combines traditional Italian craftsmanship with contemporary solutions to create works of globe furniture art like the Gea Taurus world globe floor-standing drinks cabinet.

It may not be that clear why the manufacturer named this collection Gea because in English it is actually Gaia. In Greek mythology, Gaia is the personification of the Earth and one of the Greek primordial deities. Gaia is the ancestral mother of all life: the primal Mother Earth goddess. So it is perfectly fitting to name a globe design collection after this deity.

This Gea contemporary globe bar is named after the constellation Taurus – a large and prominent constellation in the northern hemisphere’s winter sky. It is one of the oldest constellations, dating back to at least the Early Bronze Age when it marked the location of the Sun during the spring equinox.

    I was floored by how impressive this looks in my office. It’s the talk of all guests.

    I love it. I was going to buy the bigger one, but I was a bit short on cash. I was worried that this one wouldn’t look as grand, but I was wrong. It’s awesome.
