Original White, Colour Notes

White enamel Standard Coolicon® lampshades could be found lighting corridors and wards during the first days of the NHS. Our Original White lampshades pay homage to this history. As crisp and clean as a doctor’s jacket they resonate with an almost glaze-like shine. A simple classic well-suited to any interior. 

A single Original 1933™ Design lampshade can light a hallway without the need for additional floor lighting; the vented gallery offers a generous amount of up-lighting alongside the task lighting from below. Hanging a cluster or row of Original 1933™ Design lampshades in your entrance space can create a dramatic centrepiece.

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.

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

The iconic Coolicon lampshade comes into its own when lighting entryways and hallways. The revolutionary vented gallery, with its bi-directional light, was designed to dissipate heat from the high wattage ‘30’s light bulbs. The open vents allow for ambient light to reach the ceiling or cast onto the walls whilst the continued Original White Vitreous Enamel within the reflector is highly efficient at lighting below – allowing you to keep the hallway free of additional light sources.  

Pendant lampshades are the natural choice for entryways and hallways, leaving the floors and walls clutter free for boots and jackets. The length of suspension set can alter the space dramatically, try hanging the lampshades low above entrance tables to help with the morning rush and hunt for keys. The longer the hallway the more lampshades you may require. Consider hanging a shade every metre or so (or 6 feet) along the length of the hallway for ample light. 

"Ambient light reaches to the ceiling and walls; bright clean light is projected below"

"Great in sunlight, never to fade"

Made in Britain, Coolicon’sVitreous Enamel finish is hand applied by generations of skilfully trained craftspeople. As the finish is built layer by layer, the lampshade must be fired after every layer application to solidify the durable finish.At the fiery temperatures of 800°C, the final characteristics of your lampshade come to light. Exiting the furnace red hot, the lampshades are then left to cool, over time revealing their rich colours ready to carry on the Coolicon journey.

Our lampshades are incredibly efficient at illuminating smaller spaces such as entryways and hallways - the bi-directional properties brighten up the darkest of spaces. For narrow spaces, try rotating the gallery vents to face the walls, this will cast the light down the surface, reflecting into the space as it shines. Easy to clean, the seamless Vitreous Enamel finish makes dusting the shades easier than ever; ensuring that your Coolicon® lampshade remains as striking after ten years as on day one.
