At Bellerby and Co in north London, globes great and small are fashioned by a small team of experts with a keen eye for what makes the world go round
Not many people get to step inside the workshop of Bellerby and Co. Inside a warehouse in north London, it’s home to one of the world’s only makers of artisan globes. Spheres of various sizes dot the room, freshly painted maps hang on lines across the rafters and, sat at desks shaded by tropical plants, a small group works quietly on different stages of the bespoke pieces. The atmosphere, understandably, is of intense concentration.
