France - Creatiq celebrated 2023 in style as the first company in France to offer Robe’s new compact Painte moving light in a rental fleet based in Noeux-les-Mines in the Hauts de France.
The 12 new Paintes are joined by 16 x new Robe LEDBeam 350s ordered simultaneously to complete a flexible and dynamic new investment package which has already been busy on numerous shows and events.
Driving this move was Creatiq’s Cristophe Pawliszko, now the sole owner of the company he originally founded in 2006, then as one of six partners.
Creatiq supplies full production packages – backline, sound, lighting, structure, stages and video – for a range of shows and events from concerts to corporates, awards shows and other presentations and ceremonies.
Typically, Creatiq will also provide stage, lighting, sound and production design as part of their full production service package, and this is what prompted Cristophe to purchase the Paintes and the LEDBeam 350s.
The small size, speed and enhanced features and versatility of both types of fixtures – and their compatibility to work in tandem as hard-edged and wash luminaires – make them ideal for the company’s workflow and MO.
Cristophe already knew Robe fixtures well, as they had previously invested in some LEDWash 600s a few years ago, so he and his team of five full-time employees plus regular freelancers were all certain that these newer products were “a safe bet”.
“These lights are also in high demand,” he noted, adding that investment decisions are partly informed by demand. “People are definitely asking for them – Painte is an adaptable and well-engineered product that adds great value to our company.”
“It’s always exciting to be at the forefront of trends, and we are convinced that these products will soon be prolific.”
