The switch is made by the Italian company Acciarri. A small company that is long gone. However Acciarri also produced lamps. Sometimes you find one for sale on the internet. Most of the time it is an industrial architect desk lamp from the 1970s, as you can see below. Something completely different than these floor lamps.
Acciarri produced switches for companies such as Reggiani (Rome & Milan, Italy). Acciarri is an Italian family name, mostly found on the east coast of the country. No information to be found about this company.
Maybe these floor lamps were made by or produced for a company in The Netherlands. Often, when floor lamps like these shows up, it is in this country.
