Continuing our collaboration with famed globemakers Bellerby & Co., LINLEY have fashioned the Tellus Globe.
This striking piece features a 50cm diameter globe elevated on a dark grey, figured anegre, veneered stand with polished steel caps, elegant brace detailing and a highly polished aluminium base. The globe rests on three roller bearings, which allow for a fluid and unimpeded 360-degree motion.
The large orb is meticulously hand-painted using Sennelier watercolour pigment with a UV- and scratch-resistant resin coat. Honey is added to the pigment, giving the paint an incomparable brilliance and smoothness.
Based in Stoke Newington, Bellerby & Co. are artisan globemakers, whose founder Peter’s unfulfilled search for the perfect globe to gift to his father resulted in the beginnings of the company. Much like LINLEY, no two Bellerby & Co. designs are the same, making this a perfect partnership.
