At Hemisferium we build objects whose beauty and precision will surprise you. Whether you are a lover of art, history, or if you are passionate about science, we will stimulate your imagination every day.
If you dream of scrutinizing the stars with the astronomical instruments used by the pioneers of science or the navigators of the Age of Discovery, if you are curious about measuring time with the daily path of the sun, if you are fascinated and mesmerized by the old optical toys of pre cinema...
Then, we are sure that our Astrolabes, Calendars, Sextants, Sundials, Zootropes or Praxinoscopes will allow you to realize those fantasies and keep dreaming.
We work for you.
Welcome to our shop!
In this unusual trade we have learned and improved over the years. As we are perfectionists, we take care of every single detail of our instruments.
From the beginning we focused on each piece retaining its essence, its beauty and its original functions.
We use quality materials and handcrafted processes to maintain the individual character of each instrument.
Above all, we work with honesty, giving our best to make the experience of our customers fully satisfactory.
One of the main values of Hemisferium is the support of educational projects. In our origins we received the generous support of scholars of sundials and astronomical instruments whose main satisfaction was to share their knowledge and re-create those instruments beyond their studies or scholarly articles for their circle.
Our raison d'être, to rescue those milestones of ancient technology and revive them to share them and "initiate" new seekers, follows in their wake. Our goal is to help spread the knowledge behind those instruments and the scientific discoveries that made them possible.
