The Johannesburg Legrand Concept Store recently opened in the Maboneng Precinct – a trendy urban environment on the East side of the city's central business district.
The Johannesburg Legrand Concept Store recently opened in the Maboneng.
"The establishment of the Johannesburg Legrand Concept Store is an exciting development in this thriving neighbourhood, which is an entrepreneurial hub with great energy and a sense of optimism," says Vasili Kourelos, director, Legrand Concept Store. "Maboneng, meaning 'place of light' in Sotho, is just the right location for our Concept Store, as it is an up-and-coming area that is design-focused and represents the true nature of an African city. This means our solutions have to be relevant and affordable.
"Our new showroom fits perfectly in this dynamic urban setting and we intend to re-imagine the use of power, light and data in the built environment. We have teamed up with talented Johannesburg-based industrial designers, artists and artisans to create this space."
The Johannesburg outlet, owned by Vasili Kourelos, Mark Seftel and Ernest Nkomo, is a convenient venue for professionals, installers and the public to discover Legrand's stylish and functional solutions.
On display is a wide range of Legrand products, from high end quality domestic switches and sockets, to industrial solutions (seen here). The new specialist store also showcases industrial power equipment, emergency lighting, home automation devices and cable management systems.
Technical experts are on hand to advise on the finest electrical solution for every installation – whether for an industrial, commercial or domestic environment.
Legrand's concept store initiative - which encompasses outlets in Johannesburg and Durban, with more stores planned around the country - significantly enhances brand awareness. The specialist showrooms form part of Legrand's drive to boost the company's electrical solutions-offering to contractors, architects, consultants and interior designers. Particular emphasis is being given to meeting specific needs of the end user.
