Some things never quite recovered from their association with the early 70s: polyester flares, Tony Blackburn, Spangles…we could go on. But we won’t. We’d rather focus on things that are still going strong. Things like the lava lamp
. Because glowing gloop maestros Mathmos
have reinvented their iconic curio with the amazing Smart Astro Colour Changing Lava Lamp
Ultra stylish, this limited edition, touch sensitive
goo gurgler gradually changes colour
, making it even more mesmerising than its 20th century predecessor.
There are two colourways to choose from, Green to Yellow
and Blue to Red
, each one wafting through several shades en route to its destination colour. You can even pause on any colour by touching a button on the base.
Green to Yellow
Blue to Red
Unlike most lava lamps the Astro uses LEDs
and all manner of high tech jiggery pokery to achieve its hypnotic effect. It really needs to be seen to be disbelieved. But hurry, this funky lamp is strictly limited edition
. So get ordering and enjoy the gloop.
