  • Visitor Information

MathmosFor anyone who lived through the sixties in a haze of joss stick smoke that decade is synonymous with lava lamps. The revival of the light with the flowing coloured globules in the early nineties was thanks to Mathmos who took over the running of the original company. They also sell other types of groovy lighting including neon lamp shades, tuba lamps which respond to sound and mobile phone charms which light up when you get an incoming call.
