Ya, baby! The iconic 60’s home decoration, the lava lamp is 50 years old. They were created by an English company in 1963.  Since then gazillions of the lava lamps have been sold, but the originals, Mathmos lava lamps are still being made to this day.  

At the time, things were getting a little psychedelic in the British culture, and the world was on the verge of making it into space, so the lava lamp was a reflection of those times. The lava lamp has been well copies over time, but the original factory has stood the test of time. Since its launch in 1963, the original Mathmos lava lamps have been in continuous production at their factory in Poole, UK., using the inventors tried and tested formula.
