Coolicon® Accessories

Suspension Sets

With beautiful symmetry, our white Vitreous Enamel ceiling cups mirror the iconic gallery of our lampshades, both in size and shape. Made from the same high-grade steel and finished in matching white enamel, our ceiling cups are durable and electrically insulated. 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.

Brass lamp holders - Our signature brass lamp holder is designed to last for decades, just like our lampshades. Imprinted with “Coolicon” around the holder, this set is sure to place your shade centre stage.

Industrial lamp holders - These modern black plastic lamp holders pay homage to the traditional black Bakelite lamp holders from Coolicon’s industrial past.

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.

Cable Type: With a natural sheen, our finely overbraided black fabric cable ensures your lampshade hangs with that extra touch of detail and class.
Adjustable drop length: Min 15cm – Max 150cm. 
Bespoke lengths available

Please note: Suspension sets do not include a ceiling hook.
Standard Suspension Sets are certified for UK and EU use only.

Light Bulb

Can be used with both incandescent filament and LED bulbs. 
For a traditional look we suggest filament-style squirrel-cage or pear-shaped bulbs.

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 Home Office

The original bi-directional utility light, Coolicon® lampshades have lit workers for almost 100 years. The vented gallery, first introduced to encourage heat dissipation from the high wattage 30s bulbs, provides ambient lighting above and focused task lighting below.  

We recommend the Large 1933™ Design lampshade in smaller office spaces such as box rooms or dual use rooms – maybe your work desk is the kitchen table or tucked away into a bedroom corner. The larger design of this lampshade projects larger cones of light, brightening the smallest and darkest of spaces.  In larger rooms or dedicated office spaces we recommend pairing the Large 1933™ Design with the smaller Original 1933™ Design lampshade. Create a bespoke lighting experience that is sure to increase productivity and stave off procrastination. 

"Produces soft ambient light above and a more diffused task light below"

"Great in sunlight, never to fade"

Hand finishing our lampshades is what makes them Coolicon® lampshades. While using tools and mass-manufacturing our lampshades would increase our production capacity it would lead to homogeny, a sea of sameness. We take pride in the special uniqueness of each and every lampshade we produce. This pride resonates across our manufacturing processes - the pride of the master craftspeople we work with carries across into the exquisitely finished product.

Coolicon lampshades are finished in Vitreous Enamel. This highly reflective glass coating is composed of natural minerals, oxides and glass and is non-VOC. The white Vitreous Enamel inside the reflector of the lampshade was specifically formulated to reflect a neutral, clean bright white light – making the Large 1933™ Design shade ideal for small, dark office spaces.

"Highly reflective finish to brighten up the darkest of spaces"

A Classic British Grey Lampshade

Familiar to those who’ve been caught in a British downpour our Original Grey Vitreous Enamel recalls stormy skies. Inspired by the misty English coastline and the hulk of a Battleship this adaptable shade appeals to a variety of interiors.  

Stunning with Original Green and delightfully bewitching with Powder Pink, our Original Grey is not to be overlooked.
