Audrey Hepburn quote - I believe in pink

“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”

Audrey Hepburn

Refresh with New Bottles

Fancy a change; buy as new colourway and change the look and feel of your lamp. Mathmos lava lamp bottles last longer and run clearer than others but they do degrade over time. A new bottle will rejuvenate your Mathmos original. Click here to buy bottles.

Mathmos supports the proposed “Right To Repair” rules

“The new rules will benefit the environment and save resources.”

Pretty Green x Mathmos 2

Pretty Green x Mathmos lava lamp 2

The second collaboration between British fashion brand Pretty Green and Mathmos; inventors of the lava lamp. We have created two new variants of Mathmos’ classic astro lava lamp in a limited numbered edition of 400 pieces.

Numbered Limited Edition

Mathmos’ only limited edition this year. The edition is strictly limited to 400 pieces. Numbers 1 – 200 are blue/orange and 201-400 are blue/pink. There is a numbered gold sticker on each box.

Hand Drawn

The box is hand drawn in house at Pretty Green and is inspired by the graphic art of 1960s psychedelia. This year’s box weaves in the limited edition message and unique numbered sticker and is updated with the two new colours for 2018.

Made in Britain

The glass bottles are blown and etched in Yorkshire. The remainder of the lamp is made in Dorset; the metal bases parts are hand spun, the bespoke boxes printed and at the Mathmos factory the bottles are hand filled, tested and packed.

*New* Telstar now in Black and Copper

A new finish for the classic Mathmos rocket shaped lava lamp; cast metal legs with a high shine copper finish contrasting with a matt black spun aluminium body.
