We use cookies on our website, but just the so-called ‘essential’ cookies. These cookies are necessary for our website to function, e.g. to mark a customer as being logged in.

Cookies are small text files that our server recognises on your computer, allowing it to see you as a unique user when you visit certain pages on this website. Cookies are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. They can be used to identify your IP address and save you time when you want to go into our website or when you are using it.

The website consists of two essential parts: Shop & Discover.

A full amount of time and effort is put into resourcing and documenting products that are presented in the Shop. Most pieces can be traced back to literature or documentation (like original catalogues). Accuracy and completeness can never be guaranteed 100%, though. All photos used in the shop are made and owned by Palainco.

In the Discover part of the website Palainco publishes articles on manufacturers and designers of vintage design lamps. The content is sourced and/or generated internally, unless otherwise stated. We always mention explicitly if we use photos or text from other sources. The information is not published for commercial purposes; it’s only used to share information and to entertain other ‘seriously light minds’.


It is not allowed to use photos or text from without written permission from Palainco.
