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’.
