Original Grey, Colour Notes

A key colour in Coolicon’s 1933 palette, Original Grey was first used in the UK automotive industry - lighting workspaces. This classic lampshade is a warm grey which recalls rain clouds and polished concrete – complimentary to a host of interiors. 

Ideal for a home office or study, we recommend the Original 1933™ Design lampshade. The directed cone of light provides the perfect industrial style lighting to bring focus to the task at hand.

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.

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

This bi-directional pendant lighting offers an alternative solution to free-standing lamps. Free up living room space and create a clutter-free sanctuary better suited to your lighting and living needs. The light projected from the gallery beautifully highlights your living room feature wall or intricate ceiling cornicing for guests to admire.  


Reimagining the Standard Coolicon lampshade, the rounded form and innovative gallery of the Original 1933™ Design shade allows for soft ambient lighting above while producing a focused task light below. Designed to be hung low, Coolicon lampshades make the perfect lighting choice for rooms with high ceilings – check out our bespoke lengths page for lighting products tailored to you. 

"Creating bright, focused light over work surfaces and soft ambient light throughout the space"

"Great in sunlight, never to fade"

Coolicon® lampshades are handmade, and hand finished.  There are touch points all over our lampshades giving them their character and quirks. From the weld smoothing at the very beginning of their journey, to the hand enamelling, to the gold Coolicon® badge application at the end of their journey – our lampshades are shaped by human influence.  

We ensure that hand craft is relevant at every stage of our production process, this gives us beautifully unique products. We celebrate the individualism of our lampshades, and by buying a Coolicon® lampshade, you do too.

Spending long hours squirreled away in the study? Not to worry, Coolicon® lampshades are healthy to live with. Our top-secret Vitreous Enamel recipes are formed by milling and mixing natural minerals, oxides, and glass – the resulting finish is non-VOC. This means no nasty chemicals or gases leach into the surrounding environment ensuring you can focus on the task at hand and not at what’s hanging above your head – a little procrastination to admire the Coolicon® shade notwithstanding.

"Healthy to live with – and work under!"

A Classic British Grey Lampshade

A timeless colour all too familiar to the team in our Edinburgh office (it’s the colour of our sky) and inspired by some of the more underappreciated influences. Original Grey hints at rain clouds, the striking industrial chic of polished concrete, an old school blazer or the hulk of a battleship.  

Highly versatile Original Grey can be paired with a variety of colours, why not try pairing with Original Green or Powder Pink.
