About us

.
Our roots are in the traditional advertising industry. Working on several projects for our customers, we developed the idea to offer large metal world globes and spheres as ready-to-use products. The key note of weltkugelmanufaktur is our fascination to put these large metal spheres or worldglobes „on stage“ in public places, and to inspire people by these impressive objects.

Our aim is to offer high-quality commercial art by producing spherical metal sculptures of impressive size and shape.

As specialists for large metal sculptures we provide customized spherical objects for business, architects, project managers, or communities.
For the production of our products, we cooperate with several partners in the metal working industry who are masters of their trade and able to realize our – sometimes rather difficult - projects in a diligent and painstaking manner. Especially when it comes to the artistically demanding aspects of our projects, it is most important that our partners are receptive to extraordinary demands and have the professional skills to realize even the most delicate constructions.

This implies specialized welding and cutting work and sheet metal forming for custom-built applications.

Worldglobes and other similar objects are no trivial constructions and require comprehensive technical advice. We are happy to visit you to discuss your ideas and requirements in detail on site.

We take all your specifications very seriously, and also have due respect for artists planning spherical projects, sharing their high attention to details.
