German Design Award

German Design Award

An award for pioneering design, won by various Gira products.

Since 2011, the German Design Council has been awarding extraordinary products, projects, and designers. The jury – made up of top industry experts – has selected Gira products multiple times to honour their innovative design.

Gira pushbutton sensor 4 System 55: smart living made easy.

Named a winner in the ‘Excellent Product Design – Building and Elements’ category by the jury: the Gira pushbutton sensor 4 System 55. This multifunctional switch allows you to control your KNX Smart Home intuitively: as a component of the Gira System 55, it offers you even more options for customising the technology used for your equipment along with its appearance. You can combine frames and inserts from a total of seven Gira design lines in any way you like to create a statement piece in your interior design. 

Gira E2 lighting element for surface-mounted housing: keeping you safe in the dark.

To stop dimly lit hallways or stairs becoming a tripping hazard, the Gira E2 surface-mounted switch can now also be equipped with a practical orientation light. As a surface-mounted version, the switch is easy to retrofit into almost any surroundings, making it a perfect addition to the garage or basement, for example. The timeless colours black and white harmonise with every interior design. These features made an impression on the jury, earning it a special mention in the ‘Excellent Product Design – Building and Elements’ category. 

Gira IP flush-mounted radio: more than just a radio.

The jury also gave a special mention in the ‘Excellent Product Design – Building and Elements’ category to the Gira IP flush-mounted radio (available in 2023). Just like the light switches and socket outlets, it is easy to install in the wall, making it straightforward to retrofit in any room. Listen to your favourite stations in the kitchen, bathroom, or living room, for example. The radio is based on state-of-the-art IP technology and not only offers crystal clear audio quality, but can also be used as an alarm clock, or to play music from your smartphone. 

Gira System 106: flush-mounted variant for stylish installations.

Setting new standards for functional design, the Gira System 106 has been voted “Winner” in the category ”Excellent Product Design – Building and Elements” with its new flush-mounted variant.

This addition stands out in several aspects: apart from a clean, modern aesthetic, it also has a modular structure which allows for great versatility. The smart door intercom thus leaves an excellent first impression at the entrance. As a flush-mounted variant, it can be integrated into the wall – a sleek solution for lovers of minimalist design.    

Gira System 3000 touch top unit: your home at your fingertips.

Redefining our concept of Smart Home control, the new Gira System 3000 touch top unit has won “Gold” in the category ”Excellent Product Design – Building and Elements”.

It looks like a switch, but in fact works like a smartphone display: the top unit adds a new way of switching to the Gira System 3000 product range. Instead of pressing a button, you just slightly touch the sensitive surface. One tap to turn the lights on or off – one swipe to adjust the brightness. The same goes for blind control: shades can be lowered or raised with a simple swipe.

Gira G1: a compact multi-talent for building technology.

Gira G1 is an intelligent, central operating unit for KNX Smart Homes. From lighting, heating, and entertainment to security technology or your door station: using the bright multi-touch display, you can easily monitor your entire system with a single touch or gesture. This powerful multi-talent was awarded the German Design Award in the category of "Building and Energy".

System 3000: smart control of light, blinds, and heating.

With the Gira System 3000, you can link your automated lighting, blinds, and heating. All of these systems can be controlled manually via switch or remotely via app and Bluetooth. Compatible with various Gira design lines, the Gira System 3000 will blend in with any interior style.

Gira Studio: round design with an edge.

Switches from the Gira Studio design line stand out with their striking round shape. High-quality materials such as shatter-proof plastic and white or black glass top off the sleek appearance.

Gira E3: ambience as standard.

Nine colour variants and silk-matt or glossy surfaces: the Gira E3 design line is not only visually versatile, but also compatible with inserts from the Gira System 55 range. This makes it easy to combine the switches with any kind of interior style. Gira E3 won the German Design Award in the category of "Building and Elements" in 2017.
