Lutron and Meridian Host Austin Specifier Event

Exclusive event created a one-of-a-kind sensory experience and demonstrated the power of light, sound, and collaboration.

Lutron Electronics and Meridian Audio recently brought together luxury design professionals to share in a bespoke dining adventure with curated lighting, memorable music, and culinary pairings. The event was produced in collaboration with leading manufacturers’ representative Bell & McCoy and home technology experts Captivate, Inc. The exclusive, invitation-only event emphasized how light and sound can shape experiences and heighten senses in ways that transform fine dining into fine art.

A combination of esteemed local architects and designers attended the event, observing the transformative nature of light and sound through a sensory experience that featured Lutron’s Ketra lighting and Palladiom shades and Meridian audio solutions. The goal? Awaken the senses and immerse guests in magical moments to generate ideas and encourage specifiers to share the promise of luxury experiences.

Six meticulously crafted creations were served from Uchi Austin, an award-winning Japanese restaurant, over the course of the evening. Lighting scenes and sound design were tailored to complement the mood and cuisine, adding a layer of sophistication that enhanced the overall experience without overpowering it.

Demonstration: Light and sound without limits

Two pairs of Meridian Audio DSP9 Loudspeakers, finished in Piano Lacquer Black and Volcano Orange, immersed diners in authentic, natural, and lifelike sound throughout the venue.

Ketra’s Natural Light solution was integral to the event, offering flexibility in color temperature and light intensity that delivered the bright, white light needed to prepare meals and then transitioned to something softer when it was time to serve and entertain. The minimal profile Lutron Palladiom shades integrated seamlessly to help enhance and showcase the space.
