Lutron’s New Commercial Experience Center, Featuring Ketra Lighting, Opens in Manhattan

NYcommexpcenter1The power of lighting to transform spaces and moods cannot be captured on a spec sheet alone — it must be seen and felt. That need for complete immersion is what inspired Lutron’s bold new Commercial Experience Center, featuring Ketra lighting. Designed to encourage architects, designers, contractors, developers, and building owners to expand the ways they think about lighting design, the Experience Center showcases light not just as a source of illumination, but as an amenity for acquiring and retaining talent, attracting guests, and inspiring students and educators.

This redefinition of lighting’s purpose and value is at the core of Lutron’s innovative HXL approach. As a philosophy of human-centric lighting, HXL deftly employs four elements of lighting design — natural light, quality light, connection to the outdoors, and adaptive and personalized control — to help people be, work, and feel their best. At the new Commercial Experience Center, visitors have the unique opportunity to experience Ketra and Lutron’s integrated solutions working in concert to cultivate all of these elements.

At 5,500 square feet, the new Commercial Experience Center is thoughtfully complete. To help visitors envision the possibilities, realistic environments have been meticulously crafted throughout the space, from hotel and restaurant vignettes to workplace and retail settings. Every micro-experience is illuminated by Ketra’s dynamic lamps and luminaires, and controlled by Lutron’s innovative technology. Dedicated meeting and training spaces for clients and customers are also part of the Center’s footprint, and the entire space is designed to meet the WELL Building Standard — an important alignment with the HXL philosophy.
