The Geve company is a family business founded in 1969. In the early 1980s it became an limited company. Geve sold a lot of lamps under their own name, all similar to the Harvey Guzzini or Stilux lamps that are 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 they 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 and so on.
Acrylic: often named by its commercial name: Perspex, Plexiglas, Crylux, Acrylite, Lucite, is a thermoplastic.
