Since 2020, Gira has received five Architect’s Darling Awards. In the year of 2021, the Smart Home pioneers won two gold prices for best electrotechnology and best advertisement.
The Architects' Darling Award honours leading innovative forces within the building industry. For the eleventh annual ceremony, Gira was selected twice as the winner:
Gold for best electrotechnology
Gold for best advertisement
No less than 1,800 architects and planners cast their vote for the award’s survey in 2021. A jury of renowned representatives from international architectural offices, along with media and communications experts, also weighed in.
In 2021, Gira won two awards as well. The first gold price was awarded for their trailblazing product range in the field of electrotechnology. The second one honoured a German advertisement for the Gira System 106 in black matt: just as the product itself, the print ad stands out with a monochrome-minimalistic, yet striking design.
Within the category of "Best Website", Gira competed with almost 200 manufacturers who participated in Germany's largest industry survey.
In 2020, 25 types of products were evaluated – from floor coverings to technical innovations that became more important during the pandemic, f. ex. air conditioning and ventilation. Moreover, 12 theme awards were presented by a jury consisting of communication experts as well as renowned representatives of top international architecture firms. Gira won gold "Best Website".
The Architects‘ Darling Award has recognsed Gira as one of the most creative and competitors in the industry.
