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 Hallway
With its bi-directional lighting, light that projects both upwards and downwards, Coolicon® lampshades really come into their own when lighting an entrance hallway. Originally designed to encourage dissipation of heat from 1930’s lightbulbs, the open gallery vents now allow for ambient lighting to reach the ceiling whilst the reflective white enamel inside the lampshade emits a clean, bright light below – ideal for keeping the hallway free of additional lighting clutter.
A natural choice for entranceways, our lampshades ensure no additional lighting is necessary – leaving an abundance of space on the floor and walls for gathering boots, bags, and umbrellas. The longer, or larger, the entranceway, the more lampshades required – we recommend hanging Large 1933™ Design lampshades in configurations of two or three throughout the space.
"Ambient light reaches to the ceiling and walls; bright clean light is projected below"
"Great in sunlight, never to fade"
Handmade in Britain, Coolicon®’s lustrous and tough Vitreous Enamel is applied by artisans.Building layer upon layer the resulting finish hasa more solid foundation and much higher reflective properties than both paint and powder coatings. The high-gloss reflectivity of our lampshades make the most of natural light sources, allowing natural light to bounce from shade to shade along lengthy entrance corridors and into your space.
Coolicon® lampshades are incredibly efficient at illuminating smaller spaces such as hallways; the bi-directional light brightens up every gloomy corner. Easy to maintain, the Vitreous Enamel finish makes dusting the shades easier than ever; ensuring that your statement lighting remains as striking after ten years as on day one.

A Classic White Lampshade
Designed specifically for the early hospitals of the 1950s, White Standard Coolicon® shades could be found lighting the corridors and wards during the first days of the NHS. The original colour was chosen to mimic the crisp white of a doctor’s jacket, and we continue to honour this to today. The shimmer of the enamel reminiscent of the glimmer of a fresh snowfall whilst the underlying warmth pays homage to the familiar down of the regal swan or the softness of cotton.
Mix things up in a modern hallway by pairing Original White with a shade from our Contemporary Palette, such as Deep Yellow, for that pop of colour.
