Original-lavalampa från 1960-talet: Astro Baby i Koppar

Postat den 30 September 2021 av Mathmos

Astro Baby är en av två original-lavalampor från 1960-talet av lavalampans uppfinnare och Mathmos grundare, Edward Craven Walker. Hans andra design är lampan Astro. Båda modellerna såldes ursprungligen i denna fantastiska anodiserade kopparfinish, som inte har varit tillgänglig hos Astro Baby sedan 1980-talet.
