Details The Original lava lamp the "Astro" was invented by Edward Craven-Walker in 1963. His invention was based on a wartime egg timer he saw in a Dorset pub. Mr Craven-Walker remained a consultant at Mathmos until his sad death in 2000. We still make lava lamps in Poole, Dorset, UK. At Mathmos we design, manufacture and market our own range of award winning branded ambient lights. We are proud of both our long British manufacturing history and of our Queens Award winning  exports.

Millions of people have been proud to give and delighted to own Mathmos products all over the world for nearly 50 years.

The Mathmos story begins with the invention of the lava lamp by our founder Edward Craven-Walker in 1963. Mr. Craven-Walker was a great British inventor, entrepreneur and eccentric. Apart from inventing the lava lamp he also made underwater naturist films, flew helicopters, drove a fire engine, was a world war two pilot, a talented accountant, entertained the cast of the 60s musical Hair and owned a naturist camp in Dorset.

Taking years to develop the formula original models were made with orange squash bottles.

The “astro” and “astro baby” were the first two lava lamps launched in 1963 and 1964 respectively. They were an instant hit and became one of the defining products of the swinging ‘60s appearing in cult TV series ''The Prisoner" and  "Dr.Who".

They were manufactured in Poole, Dorset, and have been in continuous production in the UK ever since.
