Light Design Make a Mark with Claypaky Sharpy Plus
UK – Event production services and hire company, Light Design has supplied Claypaky Sharpy Plus Moving Spot Lights for the recent 2019 UK Festival Awards, hosted at the Troxy in London.
Light Design works across several of the key areas in entertainment production, covering the dance, live and corporate event industries, supplying professional production solutions to its clients.
A long-time user of Claypaky products, Terry Lewsey, managing director of Light Design was very keen to add the Sharpy Plus fixtures to his rental stock.
He commented: “For us as a rental company, the Sharpy Plus is the perfect fixture and exactly what we were looking for. As a beam spot hybrid, it does both jobs very well.
He continued: “We already stocked a number of fixtures from Claypaky’s range and have years of trust in the brand. The Sharpy Plus’ versatility, combined with how rider-friendly it is and the strong appeal of Claypaky products as rental items, made it a logical decision for us to add it to our portfolio.”
The fixtures will be available across all three key sectors of Light Design’s hire business: dry hire, production rental and fixed venue installation. One of their first outings was for the 16th edition of the UK Festival Awards.
Since its inception in 2004, the UK Festival Awards has been dedicated to recognising and celebrating the collective accomplishments of the nation’s most beloved industry. Wanting to make this year’s ceremony the best one yet, the organisers turned to the Light Design team.
Having invested in 18 Claypaky Sharpy Plus fixtures, Terry knew the hybrid light would be ideal for the awards. During the ceremony the luminaires produced sharp beam lights as well as visually stunning spotlight effects.
Jonathan Walters, UK sales and purchasing director of A.C. Entertainment Technologies, Claypaky’s UK distributor, provided the fixtures to Light Design.
Terry commented: “It’s always great to work with Jono and his team at AC-ET. They are always so helpful and knowledgeable, especially when it comes to supporting us with both new purchases, and existing product support.
He continued: “As soon as we found out they had taken over product distribution for Claypaky, we phoned them straight away and gave them our order for the Sharpy Plus the same day.”
