What Creates the Motion in a LAVA® Lamp?
LAVA® lamps make a unique and quirky addition to any room. LAVA® lamps are either filled with colored wax or glitter suspended in liquid. Heated at the base by a light bulb ranging from 15-100 watts, globs of wax or glitter rise to the top of the lamp, where it cools down and cascades to the bottom to start the journey once more. The result is a soothing and mesmerizing display that has become beloved around the world. Available in a wide variety of color combinations, the iconic LAVA® lamp can bring some pizzazz to any environment.
What Does a Motion Lamp Do?
For example, a LAVA® lamp makes a great conversation starter for your home or office, where its gentle glow and relaxing fluidity can lend a feeling of tranquility to help you feel more at home, wherever it is. With its ability to create a soothing atmosphere anywhere, it’s no wonder that LAVA® lamps have been a fixture of dorm rooms at universities everywhere — helping students unwind after a long day of studying.
Of course, LAVA® lamps also do a great job of getting the party started. The unique, shimmering look created by our glitter lamps is the perfect way to add some sparkle and shine to brighten a room or give a party a spark of energy. With so many combinations of colors and looks to choose from, there’s a LAVA® lamp for virtually every occasion. Unique variations on the classic LAVA® lamp — like our erupting volcano lamp or sandcastle lamp — make it possible to find a motion lamp that easily fits your home décor, your dorm room or your unique personality.
