Legrand Continues Quest for Smart, Beautiful Homes with the adorne® Under-Cabinet Lighting System

Global industry leader launches first-to-market modular power and lighting system to simultaneously enhance the tech capabilities.


WEST HARTFORD, CT – July 1, 2013 – Increasingly, technology is transforming kitchen culture via smartphones, tablets, and charging stations. Whether the homeowner reads recipes from an iPad®, plays favorite tunes when hosting guests, or uses USB ports to keep favorite gadgets charged, today’s kitchen is exceptionally high-tech and connected.

Driven to deliver both power and elegance to the kitchen, Legrand has introduced the adorne™ Under-Cabinet Lighting System. A modular track, the system fits under the kitchen cabinets to discreetly deliver light, power and music to the space. Equally impressive, its “hidden from view” location enables the backsplash to be clear of outlets and cord clutter—yielding a blank canvas to create beautiful backsplashes.

“Particularly over the past few years, the need for constant access to power has often resulted in utilitarian spaces—unsightly power strips, charging docks and tangled cords,” said Mario Gonzalez, vice president of marketing for the adorne Collection. “Demonstrating never-before-seen flexibility, the Under-Cabinet Lighting System not only meets the demand for more power, but it also provides a genuine design value. It’s the ultimate ratio of form and function.”

Customizable with modular LED puck or linear lights, the system additionally offers power outlets, USB ports, a Bluetooth music system, and mobile charging cradles. Its configuration is easy to update at any time by popping out any module and replacing it with a new insert.

The product’s low-profile track is available in three lengths and simply plugs into an existing outlet or can be installed with in-wall wiring to completely eliminate all outlets from the backsplash.

The adorne Under-Cabinet Lighting System is the second product introduction in Legrand’s U.S. launch of the adorne Collection, which also includes light switches, dimmers, outlets, and wall plates. On the horizon is the introduction of adorne Wireless Systems for the Home including a Wi-Fi Music System, Wireless Video Intercom, and Whole-House Wireless Lighting Controls.
