NEW YORK – Lutron Electronics has been a leader in the lighting control industry for nearly six decades. Now that the company is celebrating its new Commercial Experience Center in Manhattan, it’s once again eager to bring fresh ideas to the lighting and design landscape.
“Experience” is the operational word at the Flagship Center, located just off Fifth Avenue at 3 E. 28th Street in New York’s bustling NoMad neighborhood. At the heart of the center is the Lutron HXL approach, a comprehensive philosophy of human-centered lighting that cleverly uses four elements of lighting design: natural light, high quality light, connection to the outside area, and adaptive and personalized control. work and feel best.
The new center offers architects, designers, contractors, developers and builders a comprehensive vision of Lutron’s lighting and control functions.
It is “geared towards the customer journey,” says Scott Hanna, executive vice president.
“The new center offers a comprehensive experience that shows how lighting and control can affect different room types and people’s wellbeing. It gives them the opportunity to enhance and enhance the human experience. “
The center aims to inspire and encourage customers and customers to broaden their attitudes towards lighting design – not just as lighting, but also as a way of attracting and retaining talent, attracting guests, and stimulating students and educators.
Customers are invited to experience Lutron’s recent acquisitions: Ketra – dynamic intelligent lighting that mimics indoor daylight – and Limelight intelligent outdoor lighting control.
In addition, the center will showcase the company’s best solutions, including a Quantum system with integrated Sivoia QS as well as contract blinds, Palladiom keyboards and the myRoom guest room solution.
Ramin Mehrganpour, Co-President of Lutron, notes that the center is showcasing more of Lutron’s growing portfolio of solutions. “We can now highlight more of our comprehensive, innovative product range,” he says.
