The popular E2 design line shines with new design possibilities



The international trade fair for architecture, materials, and systems in Munich ("BAU" for short) demonstrated once again that stainless steel is a timeless trend. The popular classic material is now joining forces with the popular E2 design line, highlighting its clear forms. The option of mounting the switch with only 3 mm protruding from the wall underscores the streamlined design of the series.




The E2 line: An interior design classic

Its understated design makes the E2 line a versatile classic in the company’s product portfolio: it is minimalist and elegant. Anthracite, aluminium, and two variants of white provide a universally compatible selection. The stainless steel material variant will, in combination the possibility to install it flat against the wall, without a doubt become an interior highlight. The new frames and inserts now supplement the System 55 line.  


Understated and elegant design: E2 in stainless steel, flat on the wall



Stainless steel: A true all-rounder

Its robust properties make stainless steel a classic material for interior design. This is partly due to the sturdy appearance that is inherent to metallic materials. Also, stainless steel has antibacterial properties, so is perfect for use in kitchens or sanitary areas. The material is non-corrosive and weatherproof. This is why the new stainless steel variant of the E2 design line works well as a function switch in outdoor areas! Due to the E2 line’s wide range of products – covering just under 140 functions – Gira has been offering the largest range of stainless steel products on the market since July 2017. The central stainless steel inserts can also be combined with frames from other design lines. For example, a wide variety of stainless steel and glass combinations are possible, which can be individually tailored to your interior. To get an idea of how the desired switch design and frame will look in your own home, you can try out possible combinations with the Gira Design Configurator: a simple way to test out your ideas with just a few clicks. The E2 stainless steel variant will soon also be included in the Design Configurator.



An installation, flat on the wall

In addition to classic flush-mounted installation, you can install all variants of the modular Gira System 55 flat against the wall. This is possible thanks to a particular type of flush-mounted installation, which uses special wall inserts from the design range. Until now, this particular installation method was reserved for the E2 design line. However, if you would like a flat stainless steel switch in an uncompromisingly pared-down design, you can now also find this in the E2 line. Thanks to the stainless steel variant and new option for flat installation, you no longer have to make any concessions when choosing an elegant, timeless interior design. The E2 design range has everything covered: from gleaming eye-catchers to the classic, pure white flat switch.
