Product info

The original lava lamp - Mathmos Astro, now in matte black! This is the model that set the wheels in motion, the very first commercial lava lamp.

Lava lamps need little introduction: It is a capped glass bottle that has a light bulb on the bottom and a steel stand below. Using mains current, the bottle is heated up, and the oil inside springs to life and begins a mesmerizing dance.

The whole lava lamp boom started in UK when the inventor of the device, Edward Craven-Walker walked into a pub and saw a weird device behind the counter. It was a glass coctail mixer that had a strange blob of fat floating in the liquid inside. The bartender told him that it was his egg timer - when the fat had melted and rose on the surface, the eggs were ready.

Edward had the idea that by using a thicker oil and placing a lamp underneath, the machine could be commercial success. The rest is history.
