Glass – flexible in shape and colour

Glass – flexible in shape and colour

Timeless transparency with class.

The more complex our modern world becomes, the more we strive for a sense of clarity. Glass answers this need: the material allows us to look both inside and through it, making living spaces feel light and airy. This also holds true for switches from the Gira design lines.  

The art of dealing with fragility.

When tradition meets innovation.

Glass is one of the oldest materials used in the history of humankind. Its translucent play with light and colour has been fascinating people for thousands of years. In architecture, it is popular as well – from baroque palaces to contemporary Smart Homes. The Gira product range includes a variety of glass variants that combine functional diversity with delicate design.

Systemic concept, aesthetic casting.

In today’s industries, innovative technologies have replaced the traditional craft of glasswork. The basic elements remain natural: quartz sand, lime, and soda, thoroughly processed and refined. The glass frames of Gira Esprit switches are finished at 1,000 °C and then polished by hand. A jet of water grinds the characteristic edges and recesses that distinguish the Gira system design.

A strong yet effortless statement.

Due to its unobtrusive quality, glass constitutes an integral part of modern interiors. But the material has more to offer than visual brilliance: seemingly fragile at first glance, it can serve various purposes in everyday life. Gira glass frames stand out with their high stability and thermal resistance. They are solid, hygienic, low-maintenance – and exude a playful elegance at the same time.

Accents that flood every room with light.

Design elements made from glass keep surprising us with their contrasting facets, catching our eye while still blending in seamlessly. With their subtle contours and precise finishes, Gira switches match any interior style – classic or contemporary, extravagant or minimalist, monochrome or colourful. Glass makes a clear statement in the most literal sense: transparent and yet profound.
