Transcolor invests in first Robe iFortes for Poland

Poland’s largest lighting rental company, Transcolor, has invested in Robe iFortes. These fixtures are the first iFortes to be delivered in Poland. The iFortes are currently the highest-powered LED fixture from Robe’s iSeries of IP rated products.


Transcolor owner and boss Lucjan Siwczyk (pictured) says that they looked at some different options when sourcing high powered IP rated luminaires before deciding on the iForte, although the company already has a consistent track record of investing in Robe over the years, among other brands. “Lighting designers and show producers are often wanting to work with IP rated products now. Obviously for any outdoor work and for various other circumstances”, says Siwczyk.


Transcolor has over 1000 Robe fixtures of various types in stock, from the MegaPointe to the LEDWash 800, which is a particular favourite at Transcolor, especially for the many TV productions which are serviced at their studio complex in Warsaw.


Among the first projects for the new iFortes were the recent state visit by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, which took place at Warsaw Castle. The iFortes were used to illuminate the courtyard outside the Castle which was packed with onlookers watching the speeches onscreen.


They were also on the 2023 Meskie Granie tour of eight cities in Poland, a long running arts concept which presents creative Polish music and one-off collaborations by major Polish artists. During the summer the iFortes will be utilised on the various music festivals for which Transcolor is supplying lighting.


Lucjan Siwczyk recently won a “Stage Wizard of Tomorrow” Award for lifetime achievement presented at the 2023 Scena Jutra (Stage of Tomorrow) conference. He was picked as one of four extraordinary people - innovators and practitioners - who are creating and shaping the contemporary industry and influencing the real “Scenes of the Future”.
