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 Dining Room

The Original 1933™ Design reimagines the very first Standard Coolicon lampshades and our Underground Collection enriches that heritage through shared design history. Both launched in 1933, this collection pays homage to Harry Beck and his revolutionary map design.  A simple yet effective bi-directional light that provides comforting ambient light while emitting the purposeful task lighting below. 

Mirroring the efficiencies that Coolicon’s lighting brought to factories of the past, Beck’s iconic map design brought order to an otherwise complex transport system – a design duo like no other. 

Hanging a small Underground lampshade just above the eyeline creates both a centrepiece and a comfortable light without any glare.  

For large tables, hanging an odd number of Original 1933™ Design lampshades will do just the trick. Pendant lampshades can be aligned to or in between table settings to maximise lighting efficiency. Have a little fun by swapping out the middle lampshade for an Underground Original 1933™ Design lampshade. An intriguing detail for guests to enjoy that looks great with the light switched on and off. 

"A design duo like no other"

"Great in sunlight, never to fade"

The ultimate expression of a craftspersons’ art;our collection of Underground shades showcase the time-honoured handcrafting precision we find in all Coolicon lampshades.

Our artisans delicately apply the Vitreous Enamel London Underground map prior to the final firing. This complicated process is result of years of training with only a few time-served craftspeople able to achieve the seamless finish you see on these lampshades. Notice the slight level change where the tube lines are enamelled into the reflector, a detail we love as it mimics the very nature of the London Underground as it weaves its way under the busy London streets.

"Mimicking the nature of the London Underground"

A Lampshade as a reference to the Piccadilly Line

From lighting factories, workshops and even London Underground’s communication rooms during World War II, our Underground Collection honours this utilitarian heritage within modern interiors. 

The humble Piccadilly Line Blue of this lampshade reflects the hues of early night skies after days of exploring. With a vibrancy and depth synonymous with our Vitreous Enamel, this regal design adds a hint of adventure to classic interiors.  

Beautifully paired with our Classic Palette or peppered throughout Sky Blue lampshades for playful lighting with sense of intrigue.
