Black is the opposite of light. Something that may appear dark and threatening can also strike us as distinguished, pure, elegant, modern – and a little dramatic as well, because the dark colour highlights structures and creates tension. Something that architects and designers have always made use of. However, right now, black is experiencing a great comeback. This is why Gira has extended its Gira E2 range – the design classic among its series of switches – by adding the exclusive trend colour matt-finished black. Here, pure elegance meets with formal austerity and sophisticated functionality.
Gira will be presenting the Gira E2 range of switches in matt-finished black for the first time at the Light+Building. Then the entire range with all of its variants will include stainless steel and thermoplastic versions in the colours matt-finished black, anthracite, varnished aluminium, as well as satin-finished and glossy pure white. The complete range will also be available for flat installation, in which case the frame of the switch will protrude from the wall by no more than 3 mm. This diversity of design with its varying effects provides architects with numerous opportunities to enliven walls with decorative highlights.
