The Best Collaboration of 2023: Lutron and Polar Bear Design

News / 12.04.24

The luxury smart home industry is built around aesthetic excellence meeting high quality, reliable functionality. Two brands that live and breathe this, Lutron Lighting and Polar Bear Design, joined together in 2023 for the collaboration of the year.

Shown for the first time at ISE 2023, Polar Bear Design’s new range of Ursium Pro Thermostats will take design cues from the Lutron Alisse keypad range to create a product that provides the client with synergistic styling. Polar Bear has collaborated with Lutron and will be using their authorised finishing partner in the UK to provide matching finishes to Alisse keypads. This collaboration will Result in a matching thermostat that compliments the offering for interior designers in the luxury sector.

In addition to this exciting product announcement, Polar Bear Design will be working on integrating its thermostats into the Lutron’s system via Lutron’s LEAP integration protocol. This new way to control the thermostats combined with the powerful ecosystem that Polar Bear Design offers, such as Edge BMS and full management of both heating and cooling, gives the user an incredibly clean and elegant engineered solution.

The Ursium Pro Thermostat boasts the ability to control two rooms from one device and automatic control of both underfloor heating and cooling without the need for any BMS controls. It includes built-in EdgeBMS and HeatBoost technology and packs seven programmable inputs directly on the back of the unit. This is all presented to the user with a clean timeless design offering a tactile Digital Crown and an IPS Colour Touch Screen for an unrivalled user experience. All this packed in a European styled frame that can be mounted in a standard single UK back box.
