Lights on: Clear lines and soft shapes in series

Gira introduced several new products at the world’s largest trade fair for lighting and building technology. In addition to the G1 multi-touch controller and the new X1 automation module, Gira presented its new E3 switch range. The series has already obtained the 2016 Iconic Award in the category “Product Building Technologies” and has, since then, also received the 2016 Good Design™ Award in the category “Best Consumer Design Products” and the 2017 German Design Award in the category “Excellent Product Design – Building & Elements”. The latest additions to its string of accolades are the iF Design Award of the iF International Forum Design in the category “Product”, and the German Designer Club’s 2017 Good Design Award, also in the category “Product”.

Having already received a total of five awards for the new switch collection, Gira can be very pleased.

Ambiance as a product range: harmony and relaxation at home

Who says that clear shapes have to be cold and impersonal? The E3 switch range is intended for all those who would like the slim design of the E2 series with soft accents. The decisive factor in the E3 range’s design is balance. Whatever combination of support frames and cover frames you choose, it will look good and harmonious, as the colour options are purposefully designed to match.

E3 – balanced design

The Gira E3 switch series is characterised by a new design language and a unique colour palette. An exclusive selection of warm grey and brown tones has been developed with help of the NCS colour system. The collection is made up of nine modern and elegant shades. A wide variety of individualised design variations can be created by combining the pure white or anthracite support frames and inserts with the various cover frames. The “soft-touch finish” also gives the switches a special feel – so they leave a lasting impression not only visually but also with every touch.  

Available from October

If you are still at the planning stage or now want to make a new aesthetic statement within your own four walls, you can breathe a sigh of relief, as the E3 switch range is available from the beginning of October this year. So you can give your home and your business premises a contemporary and streamlined and inviting design. You can also instantly see what the E3 range looks like on your wall using the Gira Design Configurator – without any need for installation or stress, just complete peace of mind.
