No information can be found about a Bometal company in Barcelona. It must be long gone. The company’s logo is a scissor lamp, as you can see. In all probability they only produced this type of industrial lighting. You will therefore not find any other lamps online. 

However, a Bometal company exists in Spain. It is named Bometal S.A. (Sociedad Anónima – Anonymous Society), but it is located in Montserrat in the Valencian community, some 370 km / 230 mi from Barcelona. It is a manufacturer of metal structures and their components. It is unclear whether this company has anything to do with the Barcelona company.
