Our beloved Japanese design agency Nendo brings us yet another gem: a set of globes called Corona.

Rather than the common blue and green, the Corona globes have white oceans and black land masses. Furthermore, the globes show country names, but no borders. The purpose of this simplification was to:

…create a new kind of globe that would be more¬†emotional, rather than simply presenting information.

I love how the designers reduced the amount of information – even though some African countries seem to be missing…?

The globes were designed for Japanese globe manufacturer Watanabe Kyogu.
