It takes our planet Earth 24 hours to spin around its own axis, and 365 days to finish one orbit around the sun. But did you know Earth's rotational axis has a 23° tilt?
If this tilt wasn’t here, the seasons would not exist. Sunlight would hit the earth’s surface at the same angle all year long. Daytime would last 12 hours every single day, we would have the same temperatures in winter and summer, no trekking birds, no autumn leaves, no swallows in spring, no rainy seasons.
Nature would be different, and probably a bit boring...
All our products are made in limited edition. We prefer to create products based on demand and not flood the world with stuff no one wants. The globes all have a unique number, and buyers receive a certificate of ownership.
All the production and assembly is done in Belgium. We are proud of our local industry and craftmanship and try to support it in a 21st century way.
23graden is a bunch of 4 friends, each 23% shareholder. We commit to donating the remaining 8% to charity.
We try to create long lasting products, products we would like you to keep or pass on. If you get bored with them, paint them, tweak them, change the cable ... but don't throw them away.
Ultimately we would like you to make them part of your life and pass it on to your children like a family album.
