Started in Tecnodidattica, Italy in 1948, father and son design duo, Riccardo and Renato Donati, sought to hand make globes that go beyond educational purposes. Atmosphere Globes fabricates products that inspire, teach and excite.
Atmosphere Globes: Globes that provoke daydreams about the world and an appreciation for modern design.
When Riccardo and Renato Donati first opened Atmosphere Globes, their globes were forged in blown glass and assembled on bases by hand. Over sixty years later, this company's globes are made by many of the same traditional methods. Because of the quality of their globes, Atmosphere Globes supplies the world with National Geographic Globes.
Impressive cartographical accuracy, rich details, proprietary fonts and innovative modern designs by leading designers are just a few things to expect from Atmosphere Globes' collection. To ensure the utmost accuracy, gifted cartographers and editors conduct thorough research before the fabrication process begins. Designers such as Claus Jensen, Henrik Holbaek (from Tool Designs) and Giacomo Mutti contribute imaginative modern designs, which are executed at Atmosphere Globes. The result is a product that fits seamlessly into a contemporary decorum, whether it be a home or office. While Atmosphere Globes promotes a modern vision of the world and design, their globes don't lose their fundamental purpose: to give people a source of inspiration.
