Below: PYROFAG designs - PYROFAG in the 1960s and 1970s was an importer and manufacturer of lava, glitter, rain and fiber optic lamps in Western-Germany. Originally manufacturing fireworks, PYROFAG also imported and distributed beautiful kinetic lighting. As demand decreased in the 1980s for kinetic lights, PYROFAG then diversified into the precious metal business. In 2010, PYROFAG was sold to new ownership, and exclusively deals in precious metals.

PYROFAG imported and manufactured fibre optic lights and we at www.fiberopticmuseum.com are honoured to discuss the history of PYROFAG with Wilfried Virmond who ran the business whilst it was producing these beautiful lights. PYROFAG also sold and imported other designs from other companies such as Fantasia, Schott and even CIMA. Their PYROX range of fibre optic lights are some of the most beautiful with high quality and attention to detail. Our thanks to Wilfried R. Virmond for this wonderful information and insight into these lamps.

One of the most intriguing lava and glitter lamp designs were those imported and manufactured by PYROFAG. PYROFAG imported and subsequently manufactured lava, glitter and fiber optic lamps. Some of their most distinctive designs are their lava and glitter lamps which feature ceramic bases and caps, which echo the beautiful of pottery of that era in Western-Germany. We love the ceramic designs below.

PYROFAG also created metal glitter lamps and one of our favourite designs can be seen below which features a beautiful window cutout design that frames the glitter bottle with translucent circles dots around the base. Enjoy the images below.
