Large 1933™ Design Lampshade
Northern Line Black
Northern Line, Colour Notes
Black cabs, bowler hats and the aroma of freshly polished shoes; game faces are at the ready when boarding the Northern Line. Opening in 1890, this Underground network is a familiar sight for many of London’s commuters. Home to the deepest stations across the whole Underground Network, we can’t imagine Harry Beck choosing a more fitting colour than the rich black of the Northern Line.
Create an entranceway of grandeur and intrigue with our large Northern Line Black Underground lampshade. The ambient up lighting extenuates the height of ceilings whilst a welcoming down light beckons your guests into the heart of your home. Glinting with the colours of Harry Beck’s first edition London Underground map, this hand-enamelled detailing is sure to catch their eyes.

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.

Compatible with: E27 and E26 fittings
Light bulb wattage: Max 60W filament / 18W LED – 220-240V

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 Entrance
Our larger model of the 1933™ Design lampshade shapes light in a slightly different way, making it a perfect choice when lighting larger spaces like entranceways or open plan living areas. With the bulb sitting higher in the vented gallery, a greater ambient lighting shines through the distinctive vents reaching further into the room. The task light emitted below is softer due to the larger reflective dome, ideal for over larger surfaces or gathering spaces.
Pendant light shades are a natural choice for hallway lighting, leaving the floor and walls clutter free for the masses of wellingtons and coats to gather on a cold autumnal day. A classic with a twist, Coolicon’s Underground Collection is guaranteed to grab your attention when entering any home. The Northern Line Black is an elegant addition to the space, a bold colour with subtle detailing that catches any adventurer's eye. Harry Beck’s innovative London Underground map is enamelled precisely into the white reflector, drawing on the shared history of these British icons to bring you a truly unique lighting design. Hang among our smaller Original 1933™ Design lampshades for the “wow” experience.
"Two British icons bring you truly unique lighting design"
"Great in sunlight, never to fade"
Handmade using our traditional 15 step process, our expert craftsmen merge timeless colours and craft with historic designs to create this truly unique lampshade adorned with London Underground’s original 1933 map. The vibrant colours and instantly recognised patterns of this iconic map are rendered in exquisite detail reflecting the unwavering craftsmanship you’d expect from a Coolicon lampshade.
This green and healthy to live with lighting choice, handmade for you here in the UK, is finished in Vitreous Enamel all the way down to the finest map detail. The glass, natural mineral and oxide mix is milled to perfection before coating the lampshade and cured in our red-hot furnace. With strength like no other, this process ensures you a stunning light installation that will never fade, scratch or tarnish with the added bonus of easy cleaning all round.
"Exquisite detail reflects unwavering craftsmanship"
A Lampshade as a reference to the Northern Line
The Large 1933™ Design moves this heritage lampshade from the factories of the past into the grand rooms and interiors of contemporary living.
With industrial style and grace, the rich black of the Northern Line lampshade gleams as the night draws in, just like freshly polished shoes and precious gemstones. Complimenting the Underground map, this distinct shade highlights the gold of the Coolicon badge like no other.
A stunning addition to any interior – pair with our Underground Collection shades or throughout a row of our Standard Collection for lighting design that catches your eye.
