The GEVE company is a family business founded in 1969GEVE is based on the name Geert Verdat, born in 1966. His father Alfons Verdat was at that time the manager of Lustrerie Boulanger making Sciolari lamps and more. When he was sick for some time, his wife Maria took over his job since the young couple needed the money.

After Alfons went back to the factory, Maria created her own collection under the GEVE name. The acrylic lamps of GEVE became very popular.

Afterwards, they were the founders of a capiz Tiffany style lamps factory. They even had a factory at that time in the Philippines, where the capiz shells are found. Later the Verdat family branded Linea Verdace.

Geve sold a lot of lamps under their own name, all similar to the Harvey Guzzini or Stilux lamps, made of acrylic. Who produced or designed them is unknown for the moment. But it is quite possible that they were made by these companies, given the similar, or even the same parts used for these lamps. This Stilux lamp has the same handle, the same thin acrylic was used for the lampshade, a similar aluminium ring, switch on top…

Today GEVE only sell lamps made by the most well known design companies from Europe such as Oluce, FontanaArte, Louis Poulsen, Fabbian, Martinelli Luce, iGuzzini, Artemide, Philips, Linea Verdace and so on.

Acrylic: often named by its commercial name: Perspex, Plexiglas, Crylux, Acrylite, Lucite, is a thermoplastic.
