Which one do you think is better? I like them both, and both have pros and cons. Lunar looks too bulky on the base, but is has 360 degrees viewing points and costs much more.iO has a sleek design but…Continue

What is your opinion on the Mathmos iO?

I really like it, even if a bit pricey. What I don't like is the fact that the sides are covered, i preferred the lunar look. What do you think of it?Continue

"The iO is ok, It's far from perfect, I currently own 1 but have had 2, Both First 100s, one was sent back right away due to poor finish and build. Sadly a lot of the iO's have the same issue, Coating damage, Scratches, Chips, and now some…"

"Also how is no one talking about this? I mean the creator of the lava lamp was going to announce  a new prototype this year and i haven't read anything about it on this forum?"

"They were supposed to be exhibiting at a German light show in May. Obviously this has been cancelled. And they said they were exhibiting a new prototype lamp. That's all I know. I think it was sent as one of their advertising emails. I will…"

"I really dont understand why Mathmos wont listen to their fanbase. The lunar was a hit so why dont they rerelease it? The telstar was discontinued in the early 00s, then redesigned and rereleased in a much better design, so why not do the same with…"

lampfancy replied to Fernando Nicotera's discussion What is your opinion on the Mathmos iO?
"Shame the iO wasn't designed so that the side bars could be treated as optional, and omitted if the lamp doesn't need to be fixed down, and perhaps chrome blanking caps for the screw holes in the base."

Jezza replied to Fernando Nicotera's discussion What is your opinion on the Mathmos iO?
"The lamp itself hides far too much of the bottle. When you watch it, it is like watching bubbles disappear into the top of the lamp and then reappear later, really odd. I have 2 bottles and they both overheat at 4 hrs. So I use a dimmer (which…"

Jezza replied to Fernando Nicotera's discussion Mathmos Lunar Vs iO
"The Lunar is way better. Sturdy, much better design, and a lot more visually stunning than the iO.  My iO overheats at 4 hrs meaning I have to use a dimmer on it. I am not impressed by the sidebars at all. From viewing the bottle they appear as…"

"It’s not possible to be a 30 year old lamp. 30 years ago they would have been marketed as Crestworth. Crestworth ceased trading under their original brand name in about 1993/4. This lamp is more likely to be 25 years old or possibly younger…"
