Original 1933™ Design Lampshade
District Line Green
District Line, Colour Notes
Nothing screams “a great day out” more than District Line Green. Linking all the hot spots from the sights of London city centre to the charm and excitement of tennis at Wimbledon; when the District Line arrives, your leisurely outing begins.
From lighting the factories of 1933, Coolicon’s handmade lightshades find their natural home in the kitchen. With the hustle and bustle of the industrial workplace left behind, our District Line Green lampshade is a trusty companion in the busy family kitchen. With Harry Beck’s first edition London Underground map hand-enamelled into the shade itself, here is where history lessons, conversations and adventures begin. Try clustering a selection of our smaller shades above a round kitchen table for an inspiring centrepiece.

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 Kitchen
The Original 1933™ Design is equal in proportion and design to the very first Standard Coolicon lampshades. The humancentric form of the shade sits organically within the contemporary home. The character rich design and innovative vented gallery allow for soft ambient lighting to shine above, highlighting the rich colour of the shade, while producing a stronger task lighting below.
As night draws in the iconic vents cast an inviting glow of light that enriches the bold colour of the Vitreous Enamel finish. The vents allow you to point the ambient lighting in any direction you wish, ideal for multi-use spaces.
For the aspiring ‘master chef’ we recommend a row or cluster of Original 1933™ Design lampshades. Like spotlights these lampshades create bright focal lighting over worktops, sinks and tables – perfectfor chopping, peeling, slicing and dicing. Try mixing up a District Line Green shade with Original Grey for a true conversation piece.
"For the aspiring ‘master chef’"
"Great in sunlight, never to fade"
Designed to withstand the rigours of heavy industry, Coolicon lightshades are an aesthetically pleasing and practical addition to your kitchen. Our method of applying layers of Vitreous Enamel creates a durable finish which is both heat and steam resistant.
These carefully built layers produce a coloured finish with depth and anti-fade properties as well as being easy to clean of whatever a busy kitchen will throw at it. With the addition of Beck’s first edition underground map, this Underground shade goes through an extra firing and takes a steady hand for the placement to be just right.

A Lampshade as a reference to the District Line
Similar in colour to the Standard Coolicon® lampshades used in the factories of 1933 Britain, this District Line Green Original 1933™ Design shade celebrates its industrial roots.
With colour cues of emerald tiles, towering forests and foliage at Kew Garden, the rich tones of this Vitreous Enamel colour create a natural sense of peace and serenity; much like the feeling of a day out well spent.
The perfect shade for adding some extra pizazz; pair with our Original Green lampshade for a twist on the authentic Coolicon factory lighting look.
