The Netherlands - Lichtwerk (Light works) is a Netherlands-based technical production company which works closely with a wide selection of lighting and visual designers, particularly for theatre shows, tours and corporate events. The company recently invested in Robe’s fantastic T1 Profile LED moving light, which is designed for theatre, touring and TV.
Jacco Pattist founded the company in 1995, and his association with Robe goes back to the very early days when the Czech manufacturer was still an OEM supplier. Once Robe was launched in 2002, Lichtwerk was an early adopter of the brand, a trend that continued through the ColorWash 250 series, then the ColorWash 750 and ColorSpot 700 series, the DT 3000 and 7000, and more recently with LEDBeam 300s MMX Spots / WashBeams and LEDBeam 150s. The latest T1s were purchased because, collectively as a company, “We love tungsten!” declares Pattist.
Lichtwerk had been waiting for a profile LED fixture that was suitably ‘equivalent’ in quality and feel to the classic lightsource, and for something that was truly ‘theatre-grade’ in terms of its white light capabilities. When Robe launched the T1 last year, “it had all the qualities I needed,” says Pattist. “It is silent, smooth, lightweight and the output quality is fantastic. It has all the attributes you need for detailed and accurate theatre lighting.”
He adds that reliability is the big red line for a busy rental company, and that’s a characteristic he knows Robe can deliver on. “Ever since the OEM days back in the early 2000s . . . Robe has been absolutely consistent in its reliability and the excellent design and build of its products and in the ongoing support,” he stated, also mentioning that the service from both Benelux distributor Controllux and Robe direct “has always been outstanding.”
Lichtwerk supply lighting for Dutch comedian and actor Youp’s ongoing touring comedy shows, and these were among the first live performance dates for their new T1s, with lighting operated by one of their regulars, Len van der Veen.
The company has also recently invested in over 100 Robe LEDBeam 150s. With the latest T1 and LEDBeam 150 purchase, there are now over 300 Robe units in stock.
