With their cool, unobtrusive and high-gloss appearance. The quality of the material comes to life impressively in the brushed variant.
For the first time, the classic material of modern construction is being used as part of the Gira Esprit range: stainless steel. The quality of the material used particularly comes into its own in the brushed variant. Developed slightly more than 100 years ago, stainless steel has since established itself in many areas. Its functional properties have contributed to its widespread use just as much as its clear metallic aesthetics. It is used to clad the façades of avant-garde buildings, in high-quality kitchens and for household appliances, as well as for sophisticated switches.
Aluminum light gold
With its shimmering light gold color, the new Gira Esprit aluminum light gold frame variant blends perfectly with classic-luxurious living ambiances. However, it is also an appealing eye-catcher when simply installed on a white wall. The subtle yet visible polished grain of the aluminum frame underlines its high-quality appearance.
In the 1920s, aluminum became the material of the modern age – and became a phenomenon in the world of architecture. With its timeless elegance and resistance, it has continued to shape the design of our surroundings – from everyday objects to classic furniture and skyscrapers. The matt ground and anodized aluminum frame of the Esprit design line is a good example of the timeless elegance of this material. The subtle yet visible polished grain of the frame ensures an individual, authentic look. Combined with anthracite-colored inserts, for example, they make a big impact on light grey walls or bare concrete.
Gira Esprit aluminum brown harmoniously blends clarity in form with colorful warmth. The classic brown color tone is timelessly elegant, and the matt ground and anodized surfaces have a discreet shimmer, which underlines their premium-quality looks. Anodising protects and adds color to the aluminum by giving it an artificial oxide layer while preserving the natural polished grain of the material. The result: a frame with a beautiful feel – which rounds off the overall impression each time that you touch it. The frame in this variant has a sleek, elegant appearance and suits rooms with a contemporary interior style.
Modern color concepts skilfully use dark colors to add mood or emphasis. The frame made of polished, anodized aluminum in black blends perfectly into these concepts. Anodising protects and adds color to the aluminum by giving it an artificial oxide layer while preserving the natural polished grain of the material. The feel of the surface lives up to its high-quality appearance. When combined with white inserts, for example, the result is an attractive interplay of ostensible modernity against a classical background.
The most influential architects of the modern and contemporary movements used the high-gloss appearance of chrome for finishing. Many pieces of furniture designed at that time have now become timeless modern classics. Sofas, armchairs, and chairs with high-gloss chromed frames are still in vogue today. The Gira Esprit chrome frame offers the perfect complement on the wall. With its high-gloss surface, it blends coolly and unobtrusively into the room's décor.
