Mathmos Telstar: Lava Lamp
Mathmos Telstar: Lava Lamp
This state-of-the-art genuine Mathmos Telstar lava lamp is another lighting design masterpiece from the company that introduced lava lamps to the world in 1963.
The Telstar design is inspired by the space race fever that gripped the 1960s. The design is in fact a 1990s one and was instantly popular from the day of its launch and was recently re-released due to popular demand. Edward Craven Walker (1918-2000) the inventor of the lava lamp, was still a consultant at Mathmos at that time and contributed to the design. Atmospheric, captivating and cool, this stylish mood lamp is a modern design classic. A truly iconic mood light.
Telstar legs are made with cast and polished zinc and each one is hand polished. Each product is individually inspected and tested to ensure that a Mathmos telstar lava lamp is the best quality in the world. Spare parts, including bulbs, are available from Mathmos on an ongoing basis.
Cool design and top secret lava formula in trendy contemporary colours make the Telstar an obvious choice for lava collectors & connoisseurs and anyone looking for a superior quality rocket lava lamp.
This retro-futuristic mood light will create a groovy, fun and relaxing atmosphere in any bedroom, living room, modern office or party space.
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..
