NEW YORK, June 17, 2010 — Humanscale has earned three major awards at the NeoCon World’s Trade Fair 2010—the largest exhibition of contract furnishings in North America—including two Best of NeoCon awards, and a Buildings Innovations Grand Prize. Humanscale’s Humanair Personal Zone air purifier, the world’s first air purifier to harness Clean Air Zone technology, picked up a Gold Best of NeoCon award in the Office Accessories category, while the Element Vision LED task light, representing the latest advancements in LED technology, was awarded Best of NeoCon Silver in the Lighting category. The Paramount multiple monitor display, meanwhile, earned the Buildings Innovations Grand Prize in the Workplace Flexibility Solutions category. In addition, the M8 monitor arm, and Element Vision and Horizon LED task lights earned Citations of Excellence in the Buildings Innovations competitions.

The Humanair Personal Zone air purifier is the world’s first device that purifies air on a personal level, enveloping the user in a bubble of ultra-clean air while offering silent, breeze-free, and ozone-free operation. Featuring incredible air-purifying performance that removes more than 99% of airborne toxins, allergens, bacteria, viruses and more, Humanair does what no other air purifier can do—it surrounds the user with pure air. And consuming just 22 watts of power, Humanair is the world’s most energy-efficient air purifier, exceeding Energy Star requirements by 200%.

The latest in the Element series of high-performance LED task lights, the Element Vision LED task light features improved MCX LED technology, a warmer color temperature, higher CRI, dimmer control, and a passive infrared (PIR) occupancy sensor. This sensor is attuned to humans’ unique heat footprint, so only a person can activate the light to turn back on. Plus, the light’s intuitive dimmer switch allows users to customize light intensity. In addition to effortless positioning and adjustable light output, the Element Vision LED task light offers a universal ballast and plug options to accommodate most electrical outlets worldwide, allowing global companies to specify a single SKU.

The Paramount multiple monitor display is the most user-friendly multi-monitor support ever designed. It accommodates up to eight monitors in virtually any configuration, while offering tool-free reconfigurations and ultimate ease-of-use. Thanks to ingenious design, the Paramount multiple monitor display installs in less than five inutes and reconfigures in a snap. No extra parts or tools are required—everything is integrated into the basic unit, including the second-row crossbar. It supports virtually any flat-panel monitor on the market today: each crossbar can hold up to four 24” monitors or three 30” monitors. Plus, it allows monitors to be displayed in portrait or landscape views, and can be configured into flat, curved or U-shaped displays.
