Gira: Prestigious, pure, exciting

2 min read

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.

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 E2: 3 different modules
Gira E2, matt-finished black

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.

Nevertheless, the beautiful surface conceals ultra-modern technology. Since the Gira E2 range not only includes switches and power sockets, but electronic components as well, such as data transmission and communication technology as well as numerous functions of door communication and of the KNX system. The reason: Gira E2 is a part of the Gira System 55. This modular system combines a wide range of modern building service functions – altogether more than 300 – with a great variety of different designs included in six lines of switches from Gira. The standard square dimensions of 55 x 55 mm are the key. These uniform dimensions for functional modules and matching frames facilitate planning, logistics and installation for switches and other building service functions.
