Industrial light and magic

There’s an old saying that goes ‘In the kingdom of the blind, the one-eyed man is king’ – something Airstar may have born in mind when it produced its utilitarian, air-inflated lighting range, Sirocco. This, and its semi-rigid framed sister Flex, used to light construction sites or during emergencies, has six 1,000W LEDs that can illuminate 32,000m2 and with universal voltage that can be powered off a generator, without the need  for a permanent power source. With more and more Pop-Ups being created by architects, perhaps there’s room for a compelling-looking light that you just power-up and pop-on.
