one Color Globe by Nendo


Okay these image go with a short story… I was preparing a post after seeing these to me gorgeous looking globes … searching for some more information and images I went to Dezeen and saw a huge discussion about this still to me awesome globe by Japanese design studio Nendo….


…I truly liked the idea of giving all countries the same color…making borders disappear … but oh boy not everybody agrees with me as you can read here…well positive-minded as I am I still believe the Corona globe is the best globe I have ever seen in my life and I wish I could buy it somewhere and teach my children that we are 1 World!

    The globe head would pass for very eerie and strange, like an obscure bisaya short film. This one would be a perfect card for someone you’d want to be remembered by.

    You know, I had a week where I blogged about a few major colors in the spectrum and I learned a ton about color representation in other countries. Its interesting how green can represent illness/death in one culture, but prosperity in another.

    I posted about it here:


    Interesting stuff…I like the single color globe, if anything, it gives us all a little perspective. Great post!
