Mathmos Lava Lamps

Mathmos invented the product group known as the lava lamp. Mathmos lava lamps have been manufactured in Britain since 1963, and are one of the few products to have remained in continuous British production for nearly 50 years.

The original lava lamp the "Astro" was invented by the founder of Mathmos Edward Craven-Walker in 1963. His invention was based on an invention for an egg timer by a Mr. Dunnett. Edward Craven Walker spent years perfecting his invention for lava lamps and then marketing them world wide during the 1960s and 1970s.

Originally called Astro Lamps and now widely known as lava lamps, these lamps became an icon of British Pop Design and of the swinging 60s. Mr Craven-Walker remained a consultant at Mathmos, perfecting the unique Mathmos lava lamp formula, until his sad death in 2000.

Today Mathmos lava lamps are exported all over the world, and we like to think that not only are they the original product made by the inventors in the original place, but they are also the best quality lava lamp you can buy.
