Our inspiration for this classic 1963 Astro lava lamp range came from platinum vinyl record awards. The Platinum record certification was introduced in the music industry in 1976 to celebrate the sale of one million units for albums and two million for singles. Michael Jackson holds the record at 34 x Platinum for the Thriller album.

The Astro Vinyl range makes excellent birthday gift ideas as they have a unique gift box with a trippy vinyl design, meaning they can be appreciated from the moment they are received and even used for display in collections. Mathmos lava lamps are proudly displayed in many recording studios, home vinyl set-ups, work desks, gaming set-ups and bedside table lamps worldwide.

The Astro Vinyl range boasts a woven sawtooth black and white lead like the ones found on amplifiers, guitar leads and other music equipment. Mathmos lava lamps and music have a long history, from the Beatles, through the 90s to the present day. Mathmos lava lamps are popular for music videos, stage dressing, and after-party settings; the Astro and our iO giant lava lamp even toured with Stereophonics. Legend has it that no recording studio should be without a lava lamp, and this message was received by British rock legends David Bowie and Ringo Starr. They each owned lava lamps, Starr in his home and Bowie in the recording studio.
