Lovers of the fine details, our ceiling cups ensure a sleek lighting design from ceiling to lampshade.
The perfect companion set to complete your Coolicon look with a choice of three timeless lamp holders.

Porcelain lamp holders - Our white porcelain fittings are modern, clean and simple; produced for the Standard Collection they pair elegantly with all of our shades.

Coolicon® Lampshade Materials / Size / Weight
Our Large 1933 Design™ lampshade provides a greater ambient light into the room than the Original 1933 due to the lightbulb sitting slightly higher in the larger gallery opening. This design also allows for a wider and softer cone of light to be emitted below. Sharing the same visual language and proportions as the Original 1933 Design™ shade, this larger design shapes light differently to suit main room or statement lighting.
Ø400mm x 245mm - Approx weight: 1.5kg
Compatible with: E27 and E26 fittings
Light bulb wattage: Max 60W filament / 18W LED – 220-240V
Recommended shape: Squirrel-cage ST58, or ST64
Suspension set and light bulb sold separately.
Lamp holder hole size: Ø40mm

Cleaning Vitreous Enamel
Due to the glasslike Vitreous Enamel finish, the lampshade can easily be cleaned with a soft cloth.
For stubborn marks, a high-quality window/glass cleaner can be applied to the cloth then passed over the lampshade. Care should always be taken to avoid contact with the Coolicon badge.
The best lighting for your Dining Room
True to the original Coolicon lampshade, our Large 1933™ Design shades have both downward and upward lighting, simply at a larger scale. With more surface to reflect light in the dome, the task lighting that’s cast below is softer and more spread out; a statement light for any area of the house in need of some extra comfort. With the bulb sitting higher in the vented gallery than its smaller predecessor, the larger shade has a further stretch of ambient lighting reaching all corners of the room.
Bringing together two original design classics from Britain's art deco era, the Large District Line Green lampshade completes the industrial interior look with confidence and charm. The deep green colour of the District tube line, expertly chosen by Beck, and Coolicon’s original green factory light developed all those years ago, is synonymous with early British culture. For anyone with a passion for history and flare for industrial style, this lampshade is a must have for lighting your interior. Poised and ready in the dining room, the intricate hand-enamelling of the tube lines will transport you across the City of London, without having to move from your seat.
"Completes the industrial interior look with confidence and charm"
"Great in sunlight, never to fade"
From lighting the back rooms of the London Underground, the Coolicon lampshade has stood the test of time alongside this historic tube line network. Born in the era where everything was made to last, our trusty lampshades are composed of hardy materials that ensure you great lighting for a lifetime and beyond.
From the carefully spun steel to perfectly milled Vitreous Enamel finish, our handcrafted lampshades age like no other. With minerals and oxides infused into glass, the layers of Vitreous Enamel applied create a highly reflective surface, rich in colour and free of harmful chemicals. Our District Line Green is the perfect combination; the original Coolicon colour, paired with the vibrancy of Harry Beck’s ingenious design. Entering the furnace one last time, the Vitreous Enamel map is fired into the lampshade at over 800°C creating a robust design that’s never to falter, just like the London Underground signage.
"A robust design, never to faulter"
A Lampshade as a reference to the District Line
Fashioned from the original green of the first Coolicon lampshades used in factories of the past, the District Line Green Large 1933™ Design lampshades are steeped in industrial history.
Glinting like the well-polished cars of British motorsport, an inspiration for this rich colour, the District Line Green creates a sense of adventure. A moment for the senses, this colour is an evocation of aromas of fresh cut grass at Wimbledon or getting lost in nature at Kew Gardens.
Why not try pairing your District Line Green shade with the Paper Map or Classic Cream Large 1933™ Design lampshade to brighten up your interior?
