This page is dedicated to the Glitterlite which was manufactured by Crestworth Ltd, who were the inventors of the lava lamp and subsequently produced other kinetic lighting products such as Glitterlite, Living Jewel and fiber optic products.

Glitterlite by Crestworth was a glitter formulation that presented tiny tiny dust pieces of glitter shimmering in beautiful colourful liquids. Glitterlite was offered in many of Crestworth's lamp designs and subsequently but is more popularly seen in their Nordic range in designs such as the Cosmos, Nordic and Nordic De Luxe. However we have even seen the Glitterlite in the Astro and Astro Mini form factor.

Expanding on Crestworth's range of lamps, Crestworth adapted their Nordic range of lamps to create "table lamp" versions of their Nordic lamps. These lamps had the ability to feature a second light source on top of the lamp with the option of a shade. These Crestworth lamps featured dual sided packaging, one side showing a Glitterlite version and the other featuring a version with the Astro lava lamp liquids. These lamps feature the standard Nordic bottles. Two versions of these lamps have been seen.

Crestworth's Telstar Table Lamp MK1, features a flared base design and is similar in aesthetic to Crestworth's Telstar lamp design. This lamp design features the top connected to the base via an electrical cable which gives power to the fitting at the top of the lamp. Height 17" Base width 5 1/4"

The Crestworth Nordic Table Lamp MK2, redefines the combination of Crestworth's fascinating lamps with the option of adding a shade. Known as also the MK 2 Table lamp, these lamps are elegant, functional and always fascinating. MK2 is the more sophisticated of the two Crestworth designs, which has the power cable hidden within the metal structure of the lamp.
