Underground Map, Colour Notes

Bring the clarity and colourful rendering of the historic London Underground map into your home with this masterfully crafted lampshade. Two functional products made simple with style combine to bring you a Coolicon light like no other. Honour Harry Beck’s ingenious map design and enjoy the richness of the enamelled tube line colours as light cascades and bounces from the vented gallery.

As all good maps are meant to be followed, welcome your guests with a row of Underground Map Coolicon lampshades to lead them down the entrance hallways and into your home. As the warm cream tones make the enamel tube line colours pop, this extra touch of detailing will take your entrance lighting up a notch.

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.

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

Larger than the original, but sharing the same visual language and proportions, our Large 1933™ Design lampshade holds its own when lighting larger spaces like entrances and entertaining spaces. With a bulb that sits higher in the gallery, the vented design allows for a greater ambient light to shine throughout the room while a more diffused task lighting is emitted below. Simply twist the shade upon installation to direct the light where you’d like using the vented gallery as the task light below stays constant and content. 

Naturally flourishing in larger spaces, our large Underground Map lampshade will highlight cornice details and high ceilings while producing a homely ambient light to welcome your guests at the door. The vented design of Coolicon shades allows for the rich colour of the product to be celebrated. Casting light onto the shade itself, watch as this unique map comes to life when the light is switched on. Invite your guests and little ones to spot their favourite stations while casting winter layers in the hallway.

"Naturally flourishing in larger spaces"

"Great in sunlight, never to fade"

A classic colour with a twist – our Underground Map lampshades are a testament to the precision and skill of our master Vitreous Enamellers. Utilising traditional craft processes, the Coolicon lampshades of today are expertly finished over the course of three days in the finest Vitreous Enamel coating, just as they were in 1933. Hand-enamelled directly onto the exterior of the shade, the bold and familiar colours of Harry Beck’s first edition London Underground map are delicately placed to create this striking detail against the warm cream.

Vitreous Enamel, a high-gloss finish composed of natural mineral and oxide infused glass, sets Coolicon lampshades apart from all other lighting products. Robust, scratch resistant and never to fade, this lampshade was built to last, down to finest detail. With an un-matched depth of colour, this impermeable material is non-VOC (volatile organic compound) and will not emit any gases or react with chemicals; a green and healthy lighting choice handmade for you here in the UK.

"With bold and familiar colours, a striking detail against the warm cream lampshade."

A Lampshade as a reference to the London Underground Map

Our Underground Collection frames a historic era of innovation and design within the iconic Coolicon lampshade. 

On the warm ivory cream enamelled base sits the beautifully colourful map design as Harry Beck drew it. If you’re looking for a pared back yet exciting lighting installation, this colour combination is for you. 

Create a showstopping lighting installation by pairing the Underground Map with our Standard Collection’s Jet Black lampshades; be bold with the classics
