Vintlux 1933

This iconic shape was first seen in the UK’s factories in 1933 and has never been out of style since. The design still meets the original requirements of a strong downward work light, with the innovative cooling vents in the neck giving extended life to the light bulb. A soft ambient up-light is a greatly appreciated added benefit. Inspired by the original Coolicon, which was formed in two pieces and welded together, Vintlux takes advantage of today’s manufacturing processes to create a high quality, one piece hand-spun steel shade, the vents being laser cut to give a much cleaner line. The one-piece design allows a significantly higher quality finish of vitreous enamel.

The 1933 shade measures 340mm in diameter and 185mm overall height. The weight is 1540g and the shades will fit all E27 screw lampholders.

The Vintlux story

With a passion for the innovative designs that were born in the 20th century, Vintlux is a manufacturer of products that have quality and function at their heart. Our philosophy is simple: to take iconic designs which have stood the test of time and craft them in high quality materials; to respect both our workforce and the environment.

Every style of lampshade we offer has a history. It may originate from the 1920s, ‘30s or ‘50s, or even later, and it had a specific, practical purpose – to light production lines, work benches, large textile cutting tables or offices.

Now, when many of us are striving to move away from the ‘throwaway society’, to buy products with a purpose, products that are produced responsibly and made to last, these lampshades are back in favour. Vintlux looks to yesterday’s industrial lamp shades because they match today’s desire for clean, uncluttered lines that will continue to look good tomorrow.


Our Lampshades are designed and manufactured in Birmingham with all processes taking place within a 20 mile radius. The shades are traditionally produced and finished by hand with only the side vents being laser cut. We guarantee the vitreous enamel finish will not fade or discolour over time.
