The original Coolicon light, first released in 1933, was an innovative leap in lighting design. Featuring large vents punched in the top, it provided upwards ambient light as well as directional light and allowed the bulb to burn 40% cooler. This then saw it specified for decades to follow in factories, mills, military offices, Churchills War Rooms, even in hospitals and on the London Underground. Nowadays its instantly recognizable for its iconic styling and nostalgic feel. Several examples of these lovely light shades are on display at our showrooms.
