Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

my still kind of new giant Fluidium know-off. I'm pretty pleased with this one after having had to return one before because it arrived totally cloudy. This one is good although it's actually some second choice lamp.
I really wonder how this company gets to rip off the Fluidium design in such a way. Does anyone know if Mathmos knows? Or can the designer, Ross Lovegrove, just sell his designs elsewhere, as well?

Hello. It's a old post but was there ever an answer to the question where this giant "knock-off" Fluidum is from? I just bought a used one and I'm curious to know who made it. Thank you and cheers from Switzerland. Danny

Well to be honest if it's taller than a fluidium it's not a knock off cause that changes it. ESP guitar made the explorer and Gibson was fine with it, until James hetfeild of Metallica started using the ESP explorer. So everyone wanted that one. Gibson lost money sued and won. ESP still makes the explorer, but changed little things making edges sharp. Just little stuff, but doing so made it different and they get away with it. So i assume it would work with this. Like being taller, base looks like metal instead of plastic...

there you go. it's not great but it's the only one I have of it running right now and the focus was on the grande as I had to take pics for the seller.

Any chance we could please see some pics of it flowing? Cheers

Heya :)

I wouldn't call it top-heavy, it flows just like a tube lava lamp would but I've not run it a lot and not longer than some 8 or 9 hours I think so it might change if run for a longer period of time. It mostly produces bigger bubbles, not those long and winding worm-like things, but I like bubbles. :)

I got it from a german online shop called addtronic.de but I think they no longer have them in stock. they seem to be sold out at most places by now. there are still a few white/blue ones from one seller on german ebay and german amazon.

Also, what's the flow like?
