German Design Award 2022

German Design Award

An award for pioneering design won by all of these Gira products

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 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.
