Gira has released its July newsletter, with highlights of the company’s latest achievements and product innovations.

Intelligent building technology doesn’t just ensure more convenience, security, and value but it can also look extremely attractive. Gira’s products have been proving this for many years and have won international design awards again and again.

The product innovations Gira Sensotec and Gira Sensotec LED and the new switch range Gira Esprit Linoleum-Plywood are the latest examples of how Gira intertwines function and form.

It comes as no surprise that Gira is presenting its products and solutions at design events such as the 100% Design trade fair in London.

Motion detector, orientation light and contactless switch

The Gira Sensotec and Gira Sensotec LED provide more security in the dark.

They turn the light on automatically when they detect long-range motion. Whereas the Gira Sensotec switches on the room lighting in dimmed mode, the Gira Sensotec LED has an integrated orientation light for this purpose. If necessary the room light can be switched on without contact by a motion in the close-up detection range of approximately 5cm.

Clear form and natural materials

Gira Esprit Linoleum-Plywood is the first switch range to unite two natural materials that complement each other perfectly.

Both are sourced from renewable raw materials, are robust, have a variety of uses, and have always been popular among architects and designers. Frames in six attractive colours offer freedom for diverse combination options in interior design. All the details about design, materials and functions can be found on the Gira website.

100% Design from 23 – 26 September

Gira underscores its extensive design expertise at a London trade fair.

The design trade fair 100% Design will be held at the Olympia London Exhibition Centre.

Founded in 1995 and welcoming approximately 30,000 visitors, it is now the largest and oldest event for contemporary design in the United Kingdom. Gira will be represented at the fair with various products, which set new trends both in terms of technology and design. Gira employees will be pleased to invite trade visitors and design fans to partake in interesting conversations at Stand E 479.

The MacGyver for the smart house

A completely networked house promises a high-level of convenience, security and many energy-saving options, but integrating all the various components sensibly with each other has proven to be an acquired skill.

System Integrators supports architects and builders in their construction projects, such as Klaus Geyer from Eckental, for example, who was responsible for integrating the building technology in a villa in Thüringen. Stylepark spoke to Klaus Geyer about the challenges involved in installing intelligent building technology.
