The Grin Luz company was founded in September 1972. In the 70s they produced a table lamp, very similar to the Tharsis lamp (photo below) of the other Spanish company Fase, it is often confused.
The company no longer produces lighting. It is unclear when they ended the production of lamps. Their website does not provide any information about it. Today they are a metal finishing company.
Many thanks to Lluís from Eclectique Vintage for the photos and the enthusiasm.
