Lutron Opens European Experience Centre in London

Lutron has opened a new European Experience Centre in London, its first outside of the U.S. The 6,300-square-foot showroom and education space includes a mix of Lutron light and blind control solutions for commercial, hospitality and residential use — such as its GRAFIK Eye, myRoom, Quantum and HomeWorks QS systems. 

Located in the heart of London, just a short distance from London’s tech, design, and finance hubs, the Centre also includes several meeting rooms and collaboration areas for system design and training.

“Taking care of customers is Lutron’s first company principle. In the U.S. and Canada, Lutron Experience Centres provide our customers with both functional and personal resources that allow them easy access to Lutron products and technologies ” says Ramin Mehrganpour, senior vice president, Lutron, noting that Europe is a strategic and growing market for the company. “In addition to serving the European market, the new Centre will also be an invaluable resource for our customers around the globe.”

"Lighting and blind controls are experiential products that need to be seen—and felt."
— David Ribbons, director of sales for Europe and Africa, Lutron

The European Experience Centre features state-of-the-art technologies that highlight the vital role of artificial and natural light control in creating atmosphere and fostering productivity in corporate office environments.

The Centre has windows on three sides with close to 100 blinds and curtains, most of which move throughout the day based on the time of day and the sun’s position, demonstrating the value of light harvesting and its role in energy efficiency in office environments.

A live digital display shows off the Centre’s energy savings, including real-time variations as light levels are adjusted.

Clients can also explore the company’s elegant residential product offerings, like Palladiom keypads and thermostats, as well as an integrated hospitality guestroom and retail area.

“Lighting and blind controls are experiential products that need to be seen—and felt. Visitors to the new Centre can immerse themselves in the transformative experience of watching a room take shape with the press of one button,” says David Ribbons, director of sales for Europe and Africa, Lutron. “Clients will leave the Centre with a greater understanding and appreciation for how these controls can enhance the places you work and live.”

Other Lutron Experience Centres are located in Plantation, Fla.; New York City, NY; Coopersburg, Pa.; Irvine, Calif.; Washington, D.C.; and Toronto, Canada.
