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 Kitchen
The best dinner parties stretch long into the evening in a welcoming space - by carefully curating a selection of Original 1933™ Design lampshades above your dining table, you can create an intimate room for all to enjoy. This timeless design keeps the focus on the table and those sat around it, whilst allowing the kitchen (dirty dishes and all) to remain muted in the background. Bring some playful design into the room by hanging a selection of Original 1933™ Design lampshades in odd numbers at varying heights centrally above the dining table, then sit back and let the evening dinner games begin.
This classic pendant light, with its rounded form and open vented gallery, allows focused task lighting to shine below and diffused ambient up-lighting to fill any room – the very same feature that made the factories and workshops of 1930s Britain a safer space to work. Uplifting and joyful in the natural sunlight of day, the shaped light from the iconic gallery vents showcases the layers and richness of the Vitreous Enamel finish as the evening draws in.
"Shaping the light, this lampshade creates the perfect relaxed atmosphere for hosting dinner parties"
"Great in sunlight, never to fade"
Our Vitreous Enamel process results in beautifully unique products. As the enamel melts and flows over the surface of the shades under the heat of the furnace variations in thickness can occur. These variations are most likely to be found over the contours of the shade and where the enamel thins over the acutely curved rim. Our Sky Blue Vitreous Enamel contains some of the more reactive oxides that we work with. At times when exposed to the extremely high furnace temperatures, the oxides can be subject to subtle yellowing, creating an illusion of sand beneath the waves.This can be seen most in areas of thinner enamel such as over the contours and rim of the shade.
Designed to withstand the rigours of heavy industry, and with a bi-directional light emitting from the hand welded gallery and reflective interior, Coolicon® lampshades are an aesthetically pleasing and practical addition to your kitchen. Applying layers of Vitreous Enamel creates a durable finish which is both heat and steam resistant. These carefully built layers are also easy to clean of whatever a busy kitchen will throw at it. Guaranteed to look as great after ten years as on day one this makes the Coolicon® lampshade an ideal lighting source for the kitchen.
"The shape influences the colour, and the colour highlights the shape"
