Giant Lava Lamp

Giant Lava Lamp in a tent with its regular sized lava cousins

Why give your home or office wow factor when you can give it WTF factor with a Giant Lava Lamp. Utterly mind-blowing, these humungous, custom-built tubes of amorphous glowing gloop are made to order by Mathmos, inventors of the original, generation-defining Lava Lamp, and they are jaw-droppingly impressive. Oh, behave!

Your eyes do not deceive you because Giant Lava Lamps can be up to two metres tall and 20cms in diameter. That’s big. Really big. The boffins at Mathmos will also design and fabricate the lamp’s metal base and cap to your specification before galvanising it or powder coating it in any colour you fancy. You can even choose the colour of the floating gloop.

Install this ironic but iconic glass column in your pad/lobby/subterranean lair and we guarantee visitors will be totally mesmerised. Indeed, short of putting a retractable bridge over your freeform shark pool we can think of no better way to add an OTT touch of supervillain chic to your volcano-based abode.

Although the science is similar, Giant Lava Lamps use a slightly different formulation to their smaller siblings and must therefore be filled on site. (The liquid will last approximately 2000 hours but refill packs are available). What’s more, once installed the lamp can’t be moved. This is heavy stuff!

As you’ve probably guessed, the Giant Lava Lamp doesn’t come cheap. But if money is an issue it’s probably not for you in the first place. After all, anyone with the cojones to install a soaring tube of hypnotic blobbiness in their crib has got to be a massive banker, a rapper, a rocker, a striker or an extravagant gadget-fan with a penchant for towering symbols of success. They’re right, size does matter!

Customer Reviews

When will this be available to purchase? and do you have a service to come to your house and assemble it for you?
Hillary Pond - 6th January 2013
Firebox says: Hi Hillary, I'm afraid we aren't selling these anymore, really sorry!
Where can you get that silver tent?
Bradley Plenderleith - 19th October 2012
Firebox says: Good question Bradley! Unfortunately it's not a product that we stock, and the photo didn't originate from Firebox HQ. The best I can find are at: Hope this helps!
Are these suitable for sensory rooms (i. E do they get as hot as the little ones & how safe are they in general) & would you do a discount if it was for a child/children with special needs.
Bobbles - 3rd August 2012
Firebox says: Drop us a line to with these details and someone will get back to you!
I know it says once filled it cannot be moved but you also say that the lamp can be refilled. Does this mean taking out the old liquid and putting in new? And if so can you move the lamp by taking out the liquid? Thanks!
Beccy - 7th November 2011
Firebox says: Hi Beccy, it is possible, but you have to be very careful when emptying and refilling the Giant Lava Lamp. It contains about 25 litres of liquid so it's no mean feat to do it alone. You can move the lava lamp once it is empty, but it will still be very heavy so you would need a few strong people to help you. Good luck!
Why is it that every time I view this lava lamp and can only wish, I notice that the price has increased... again?
Ben - 18th April 2011
