Lutron Electronics’ Palladiom Shading System features highly crafted exposed hardware for the most high end of high-end homes. This new aesthetically-driven solution offers top-of-the-line shading performance and reliability, plus seamless integration with Lutron’s HomeWorks QS system and other third-party products.
To achieve the desired minimalist aesthetic desired by the architecture and design community, Lutron completely redesigned its shade drive and structural architecture, ensuring the Palladiom Shading System would be visually striking in an exposed install condition. Lutron’s Palladiom keypad was the inspiration for the design language exemplified by the brackets and hembar for the Palladiom Shading System — minimal in form and deliberate in its simplicity.
“Lutron’s material manufacturing excellence and unique position in the industry as a shading technology innovator put us in the perfect position to develop the Palladiom shading system,” said Ed Blair, Lutron senior vice president. “This new shading system expands the Palladiom collection of coordinating keypads, accessories and thermostats, giving homeowners the ability to match aesthetics throughout a space without compromise.”
Palladiom Shading System features include large window capacity, available for shades up to 12 by 12 feet within a 3-inch profile. It also offers symmetrical half-inch light gaps, the smallest light gaps of any Lutron automated shade. The hand-polished hardware for the line is available in a variety of metal finishes. The Palladiom Bottom Rail completes the look with a slim, metal hembar that fits into the negative space behind the bracket when the shade is fully open.
The product will begin shipping to a select, exclusive group of Lutron dealers in December, with broader availability in early 2018.
