Revolutionary Monitor Arm Impresses at IDSA Competition

NEW YORK, July 8, 2010 — Humanscale’s M2 monitor arm has earned a prestigious 2010 International Design Excellence Award (IDEA®) from the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA).  The M2—which took the Bronze honor in the commercial and industrial products category—was among more than 1,800 entries from 29 different countries.

Honoring the most inventive and creative product and product concept designs each year, the IDEA awards are highly sought after as endorsements of design excellence. As winner of an IDEA award, the M2 adds to its already-long list of awards for superior product design, including a 2009 Best of NeoCon Gold Award, a “Focus in Silver” award from Focus Open 2009, a Product Innovations Awards Grand Prize from Buildings Magazine, and the Best Ergonomic Solution distinction at Mixology09.

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 to allow computer users the ability to easily position the monitor at optimal height and depth, while freeing space on the work surface.

The M2 offers a remarkably long serviceable life and 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.
