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 Living Room
The Large 1933™ Design reinvents the smaller Standard Coolicon lampshade, seamlessly transferring our iconic design from an industrial setting into the contemporary home. Our Underground Large 1933™ Design shades produce the classic bi-directional lighting of Coolicon shades with intricate hand-enamelled detailing inside the reflector. The high-gloss Vitreous Enamel finish of Beck’s Underground map ensures that light is seamlessly reflected while highlighting the rich colours of the enamelled lines.
Bringing a whole new meaning to industrial lighting, this lampshade celebrates a shared history of two industrial icons. Both the original Coolicon lampshade and Harry Beck’s first edition London Underground map were released the same year – a year of greats – 1933. As such, Coolicon Lighting are the only company to use Beck’s design on a product in this way.

"Great in sunlight, never to fade"
Handcrafted in the UK, our collection of Underground shades celebrate the alchemy of Vitreous Enamel. Finished with time-honoured skills, years in the making, these lampshades pay homage to Harry Beck and his revolutionary map design.
Each Vitreous Enamel coloured line is layered with precision and intricacy to create this joyous render of Beck’s London Underground map. Look carefully and you’ll spot each colour resides at a minutely different level within the shade; reflecting the nature of the underground rail network itself. This is due to the varying oxide and mineral compositions of each delicately weighed enamel. Fired into the shade, never to tarnish or fade, this map honours British design engineering and innovation at its finest hour.

Pairs beautifully with our Sky Blue shade – complimentary to the details of this unique design.
