NEW YORK, December 16, 2009 — Humanscale’s M2 monitor arm received ‘Best of Year’ honors in the Accessories category from Interior Design magazine’s Best of Year Awards. The preeminent design competition for the interior design industry, the Best of Year Awards also extended a Merit Award to the Diffrient World chair in the Seating: Contract/Task category.

The Interior Design Best of Year Awards recognize superior interior design projects and products in more than 65 categories. Voted on by members of the architecture and interior design community, Best of Year distinctions are awarded to the projects and products that receive the overall highest number of votes in their respective categories. Since the awards are decided by a popular vote, winning designs are considered to be of the highest functional and aesthetic value and provide benefits to the widest range of users.

The M2’s advanced engineering promises to revolutionize the dynamic monitor arm category. Utilizing a high-performance mechanical spring—instead of a bulky, failure-prone gas cylinder—the M2 offers dynamic adjustability in an ultra-slim and eco-conscious design.

Offering a remarkably long serviceable life, the M2 is backed by Humanscale’s 15-year 24/7 warranty. Made of 52% recycled and 99% recyclable materials—including significant use of 100% recycled aluminum—the M2 can contribute to a number of valuable LEED credits.

The Best of Year award is the eighth prestigious industry accolade the M2 has received in 2009. Other awards include a Best of NeoCon Gold, an iF Product Design Award from International Forum Design, the Best Ergonomic Solution distinction at Mixology09, and a Product Innovations Awards Grand Prize from Buildings Magazine.

In the Seating: Contract/Task category, Humanscale’s Diffrient World chair received a Best of Year Merit Award. A marvel of design simplicity, the Diffrient World chair features revolutionary mechanism-free recline and Humanscale’s innovative Form-Sensing Mesh Technology to provide the ultimate user-friendly and sustainable sitting experience.
