We were recently contacted by Prompt Side – a company who specialise in theatrical drapery. They wanted to implement LED illumination behind a super-wide digital textile print of Botticelli’s ‘Birth of Venus’ for upcoming shows at ABTT and Showtech.

Working with Peter at Prompt Side, Vink helped to find out which was the best LED product to put behind the printed textile, called Microfibre, which is 100% polyester and 260gsm. We found that the OSRAM BackLED L Plus was the ideal product for this due to its high light output and even illumination. The product also benefits from being compatible with OSRAM’s "Click & Play" mounting system, which dramatically reduced Prompt Side’s installation times.

The finished work went on display at The Association of British Theatre Technicians Theatre Show during June 2013, at The Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane. It was Prompt Side’s 5th consecutive year of exhibiting, and they were delighted to win Stand of the Year for their Botticelli design.



We at Vink would like to congratulate Prompt Side on their award. If you would like further information on their work, visit www.promptside.co.uk.

We currently stock the OSRAM BackLED L Plus product in a variety of white colours (6500k, 4000k, 3000k), together with a range of drivers and the OSRAM "Click & Play"mounting system. Please contact us for further information on this product.
