Mathmos Fluidium Green: Lava Lamp designed by Ross Lovegrove
Mathmos Fluidium Green by Ross Lovegrove: Lava Lamp
Ross Lovegroves' modern take on the Lava lamp. Hand made in Dorset. Some call it kinetic art, some call it stunning, we call it genius.
Known as "Captain Organic," Ross Lovegrove embraces nature as the inspiration for his "fat-free" design. Each object he creates -- be it bottle, chair, staircase or car -- is reduced to its essential elements. His pieces offer minimal forms of maximum beauty.
Switched on, the Fluidium Green gives off a space-age glow from within and, due to the wax colour matching the base and cap, it creates the delicious illusion of lava melting from the outer body and floating around the refreshing clear liquid inside the lamp. Create the perfect chill-out atmosphere in any room.
Edward Craven Walker got the idea for the original lamp design after walking into a pub in Dorset, England and noticing a rather odd item (egg timer) sitting on the counter behind the bar. He spent the next 15 years perfecting the invention so that it could be mass-produced.
The Astro Lamp, later called the Lava Lamp, was launched in 1963 just ahead of the craze for all things psychedelic, and was an instant hit and became one of the defining products of the swinging ‘60s.
Mathmos lava lamps are still made in the original factory in Poole, Dorset, UK.
Every bottle is filled by hand with the secret and unique Mathmos formula and the astro base and cap is hand spun by skilled British craftsmen. Each product is individually inspected and tested to ensure that a Mathmos lava lamp is the best quality in the world.
Replacement parts for this iconic design classics, including bulbs, are available from Mathmos on an ongoing basis for products bought today or in 1963.
