Project Store :

a combination of showroom and training site

Legrand also innovated in service to customers, opening Innoval Lyon (France), its first "project store," at the end of 2014. This all-new concept gives customers an opportunity to explore group offerings in operation in a connected, interactive showroom and offers training to install Legrand solutions.

Innovation is, along with acquisitions, one of the drivers of Legrand's growth.

Innovation is a permanent dynamic of the Group. It is right at the heart of our culture. To innovate is to develop solutions that provide an additional benefit to the user. It is developing new features for smart and personalized management of buildings. It is improving safety, ease of implementation, ergonomics and comfort. It is also exploring new territories to anticipate needs.

Dynamics of technological innovation and marketing

Innovation is not just about technology, it's a state of mind that is supported by the entire Group. Evidently by the industrial teams, but also by the sales and marketing teams as well as those in charge of development.

Accelerate the development of Legrand's connected range

Convinced that the Internet of Things opens a new era for buildings, Legrand launched in 2015 the Eliot program. Its mission is to inspire a dynamic of communication into all Legrand products that require maintenance, supervision or remote control. Already involved in the world of connected objects, especially with My Home and intelligent safety lighting blocks, Legrand intends, with Eliot, to accelerate the development of its connected range.

Innovating to explore new territories

Each year, Legrand devotes an average of 4 to 5% of its turnover to Research & Development. These important means allow us to explore new territories. Based on permanent monitoring, the Group innovates in particular on new market segments, including energy efficiency, digital infrastructures, residential systems and assisted living. Legrand Design also leads exploratory work to devise cutting-edge concepts, taking us into the future.

Flocoon PIXEL: Legrand presents the electrical controls of tomorrow

Avant-garde electrical control concept presented at the International Design Biennial of Saint Etienne 2015, FLOCOON Pixel is center-stage with its shape and unpublished concept of commands that create a new relationship between Man and habitat. An inspired connected object, FLOCOON Pixel explores smart and intuitive management control based on interactivity and the fusion of function and finish. It is the user who, entirely avant-garde, will be able to play and compose their own command, in one simple instinctive gesture.
