Aro-Leuchten GmbH was founded in 1969 as a family business. It ended business 40 years later in 2006. Unfortunately not much to be found about the company. Today, the website is offline. The url or web address was www.aro-leuchten.de. Mister Matthias Arnold was the last managing director. The company was specialised in lamps that looked similar with well known lamps made of glass but they made them in acrylic (plastic). You can find several examples here on Vintageinfo.
Flower lamps in this style were also produced in Germany and Austria by companies such as Doria-Werkstätten and Rupert Nikoll. The Rupert Nikoll lamps often were made with real dried flowers in their lampshades. Very delicate lamps, of course. Not many lamps are left.
Many thanks to Ger for the beautiful pictures and enthusiasm.
