Golden-Age Hollywood Meets Modern Era: Hobolite, a New Professional Lighting Brand
LUMESCA Group has been appointed the exclusive European distributor of the brand-new pioneering lighting brand, Hobolite, through its British and German offices. Created by artists for artists, Hobolite produces finely crafted, professional and powerful lighting and accessories for photographers, videographers, content creators and more. Their highly anticipated products have already won awards in design, with a focus on creating lighting that is as functional as it is beautiful. Following successful launches in the US and Asia, LUMESCA Group will distribute the complete award-winning Hobolite range in the UK, Germany, France, Poland, Spain, Italy, Benelux and the Nordics.
"At LUMESCA, we pride ourselves on the quality and professionalism of the brands and products we support; Hobolite illustrates this value entirely. Eye-catching yet practical lighting that sets a standard for what a light can look and feel like, and ultimately what it can create for the user", commented Geoffrey Clements, Managing Director of LUMESCA Group.
The Hobolite range is built around three models – Mini, Avant and Pro, all of which pack a punch in product performance as continuous lights. They range in power from 20-300W, have a light output from 2700K – 6500K with an excellent CRI, and quality diffused light, softened nicely with smooth shadow transitions. Through the precision choice of high-quality materials, the lights are compact and lightweight, stylish yet functional and reliable. Designed for artists on the go, there is a Hobolite light to suit all types of photography, content creation and video production.
Built with convenience in mind, the lights work together as one cohesive smart system, optimised and designed for portability to increase the ease of transport, set-up, and overall on-location mobility. The benefits of this smart system are most notable when using the well-equipped lighting kits from Hobolite. The kits are curated to include a light and integral Hobolite accessories such as carbon-fibre tripods and collapsible modifiers, so the user has everything they need in one integrated kit for any shoot at any location. The kits reduce the burden of packing multiple tools and attachments when life, art, and work take creatives out of the studio and give them the confidence that they have the best professional gear powering every shot.
Hobolite’s mission is to create lighting as functional as it is beautiful, with great attention to detail, a considered approach to design and materials, and a genuine love of lighting as art – winning the 2022 IF Design Award & Red Dot Awards. Made from durable, quality materials such as aircraft-grade carbon fibre and environmentally-friendly faux leather and with fully repairable/replaceable components, the attention to build quality and longevity is second to none.
"Hobolite lights are not simply tools, but an expression of the artists who use them. Inspired by the golden age of Hollywood combined with the craftsmanship of mid-century modern design, our lights radiate vintage style without sacrificing modern capabilities", added Helena Bian, CEO and Founder of Hobolite.
The entire Hobolite range is available now from leading retailers across Europe and hobolite.eu. The kits start from just €342 and the lights from €307.
