Gira win two iF Design Awards for Design Excellence
Gaining international recognition for form and function, Gira, one of the world’s leading full-range suppliers for intelligent building design and management has won two coveted iF Design Awards for its recently launched System 3000 Touch Top unit and Motion Detector Cube.
Every year, iF Design Awards identifies outstanding design, its relevance in business and everyday life and thereby awards one of the most important seals of quality in the world. Founded in Germany in 1953, the iF accreditation is a global marker of good design for consumers as well as the design community and Gira is proud to have 63 of its products recognised over the years.
Mark Booth, Managing Director, Gira UK says, “We are delighted that two key products for the UK market have been so highly commended with both the System 3000 Touch Top Lighting Unit and the Motion Detector Cube scoring highly for concept, form, function, differentiation and impact against the judges’ criteria. To be acknowledged by internationally recognised design experts is a tribute to our sustained level of innovation. We are proud to keep pushing the boundaries so that we can offer our UK customers the very best in functional elegant smart home solutions, which harness the latest technology and intuitive control when it comes to lighting, heating, blind control and door communication.”
The Gira System 3000 Touch Top Unit can be used as either a dimmer or a blind controller. The desired brightness or blind position can be infinitely adjusted by swiping a finger over a touch-sensitive light bar, with the LED display providing instant feedback on the lighting or shading status. Brightness values and blind positions can be stored and directly called up via three additional control points. During product development, attention was paid to ensuring simple operation so that it is applicable for accessible living areas.
The Gira Motion Detector Cube monitors the home and garden, switching on the outdoor lights as soon as it detects movement in its vicinity. This way the device provides more convenience and safety for outdoor areas. The motion detector Cube combines clean and minimalist lines with intelligent technology. The understated cuboid design comes in pure white glossy and anthracite colours so that it can effortlessly blend into the architectural environment. Its design also ensures easy installation and wiring, and it is suitable for both wall and ceiling mounting.
