This innovative new light design is both waterproof and inflatable


It is true that we saw many lights at the IBC Show, many of which were interesting updates. But it’s rare that you find a company willing to completely reinvent things and come up with something completely different.

DIYP was thrilled to discover Pipe Lighting showcasing their truly innovative lighting designs. We spoke to CEO and co-owner Eduard Bochanov to find out more.

“We call it breakthrough technology,” says Eduard, “it’s good for everyone in the film industry. Our light is unique because it’s inflatable,” he adds.

wait what Yes, you read that correctly. Pipe Lighting makes inflatable lights! It’s somewhat similar to the flexible LED light mats that already exist, except you can inflate the lights, creating an almost built-in softbox diffuser. You can inflate it with an air pump that you use on a camping air mattress, for example, so very little additional equipment is required. It obviously takes up very little space and is quick to set up and take down. You can also use it deflated as a lightweight mat if you like.

“The unique selling point is the power-to-weight ratio,” says Eduard, “it’s extremely powerful and weighs very little.” The lights are also waterproof and even work underwater to a depth of 2 meters! They can also be used on the water surface like an air mattress.

For now, the lights are two-tone, but the company plans to introduce an RGB version next year. The output power of the largest light is 1500 W. This is incredibly powerful for such a light and quick to assemble light. The lamp is fully assembled in 2 to 3 minutes.

The light quality is very soft and accessories such as grilles can be purchased separately. It also comes complete with a puncture repair kit.

The biggest Pipe Lights are around 7 meters high, which is huge! A conventional light or modifier of this size would take up an enormous amount of space even when packed up. But of course they also produce smaller versions. You can choose from 2ft, 4ft, 6ft, 8ft, 24ft and more. They come in two formats, the tube and the mattress.

Another very interesting version is a light tube that can be filled with helium instead of air so you can levitate it in the sky!

It is unusual to find a product that turns everything that has gone before so completely upside down. These pipe lights are truly innovative and could yield some exciting new creative uses in the near future!

If you are interested in purchasing one of these lights, you need to contact the company through their website.
