Lighting control manufacturer Lutron Electronics Co., Coopersburg, Pa., announced it has begun work on a new Experience Center, which will open in Manhattan in early 2009.

The Manhattan location will feature a variety of Lutron’s residential products showcased in a space typical of New York City living. In addition to bedroom, kitchen and media/family room vignettes, a showroom and design center will give clients the opportunity to view a variety of product colors, finishes, sustainable lighting control options and shade fabrics.

This is the company’s fourth experience center. Other locations are Irvine, Calif., and Coopersburg, Pa. Lutron’s first experience center, which opened in 2001, is in Plantation, Fla.
