Quality Italian Craftsmanship by Zoffoli
World Leader in the Manufacture of Antique-Style Globes
Anyone familiar with the art of globe-making knows that this Italian manufacturer is the best of the best when it comes to globes, and it has been that way for decades.
It all began in 1963, when the Italian media turned the spotlight on Italo Zoffoli, who was the head of a generation of expert craftsmen. His sons now run the world famous company and they'll no doubt pass the expertise down to theirs.
Today the company still produces classic globes and antique-style globe drinks cabinets with the same passion that was shown by Italo Zoffoli decades ago.
Zoffoli's team of cartographers create museum-quality reproductions and apply them in layers to spheres to make globes.
All of Zoffoli's vintage globes and bar globes are true authentic reproductions of antique globe cartography. The superior workmanship is of each is evident from the hand finished screen printing and superior wood used for every Italian bar globe and globe drinks cabinet.
The Classic Collection features replicas of original vintage furniture pieces with museum quality 16th century map reproductions printed onto traditional paper gores and then applied in layers to the globe spheres.
"Generation after generation memories and suggestions are handed down making our products richer and full of charm." -- Zoffoli
Zoffoli's GEA Collection consists of globes and bar globes which are as elegant and breathtaking as timeless antique replicas, while the globes themselves feature up-to-date geographical maps. All the bar globes in our Current World Map Globe Bars category are from this collection by Zoffoli.
"Charm is the element of distinction of our products ... Sacrifice and hard work are key elements ... But nothing can be achieved without a sense of passion. It is this combination that makes our products unique." Zoffoli, 2011
The Geographica Collection is Zoffoli\'s design and contemporary collection. The two bar globes included in it are new additions and can be found in our Current World Map Globe Bars category
"Zoffoli's dream has always been to combine the ancient craft of globe-making with the latest techological solutions, thus way succeeding in expoiting new materials with traditional methods on an industrial level, and aiming to create a modern version of the geographical globe that remains true to the concept of elegance and excellence in a classical crafted object." -- Zoffoli
