NAPAKO is a production cooperative based in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. At the time, it was called Czechoslovakia.

The NAPAKO cooperative was founded in 1919 as a special association of small private companies mainly involved in the construction of metalworking. After the war and then after 1948, the cooperative was partially nationalized and the then economic model was applied.

In the second half of the last century, the cooperative built extensive production facilities at its current address in Prague - Michle, where the company now has its headquarters. The company no longer produces lighting.

Josef Hůrka (1920 - 1993) and Helena Frantová were the best known designers of the company NAPAKO. He designed numerous famous lamps. He initially worked as a designer of electrical appliances for the NAPAKO cooperative. The company later ceased production and Hůrka had to refocus on the lighting design. NAPAKO received several awards for its lamp designs. Josef Hůrka designed many household lamps for the cooperative. Both designers also worked for other lighting manufacturers in the country.
