The Coolicon lamp shade from Factorlyux evokes an art deco elegance that works just as well today as it did in 1933, when the design was first patented. The patent applies to the shade’s innovative solution for dealing with a light bulb's thermal output, whereby a distinctive open neck design dissipates heat away from the fixture quickly and effectively.
Today's coolicon lamp shade receives its unique shape from the same techniques that made the original so popular. Individual steel discs are rotated at high velocity while pressure is applied with levers and by hand at specific points to lend it that distinctive tapered shape. Each is hand made in the UK, with only the laser cut neck sections benefitting from a modern touch. This is done to give this section of the shade a layer of modern precision that was absent from the originals.
The shade’s steel and vitreous enamel construction lends it a reassuringly healthy weight that speaks of reliability and quality. Vitreous enamel is colourfast, meaning that the shade's colour accurately replicates that of the original. Therefore, the black enamel version you see pictured here differs neither in shape nor colour from the original Coolicon utility lamp shade.
Pair it with an antique filament or designer B22/Bayonet Cap bulb for that perfect 1930s vibe.

If you require an order to be delivered urgently, please contact us to make the necessary arrangements. A next-day delivery service may be available. If you arrange an urgent delivery, there is still no absolute guarantee that it will be delivered the next day, as despite our best efforts, courier failure/errors and ‘acts of god’ may still occur.

Please make sure that you always order your light bulbs to arrive well before you need them as costs of cherry pickers and sub contractors are always more expensive than the light bulbs themselves.
