A modern and artistic version of the lava lamp.

London-based designer Merve Kahraman has created a modern version of the lava lamp. The ‘Revitalizer’ uses a high-voltage lamp to melt the wax lampshade into a molded cup located below the bulb. As the lampshade drips down, it constantly forms new shapes and different intensity of light.

Once the lampshade is used up, it is replaced by the wax in the cup when it has cooled down. Kahraman explains that the design of the Revitalizer represents the “poetic transformation through metamorphosis” where the wax is a symbol for the death and rebirth of an object.
