NEW YORK, September 15, 2010 — Humanscale’s Horizon LED task light received one of six 2010 Best of Boutique Awards at the annual Hospitality Design Boutique Exposition & Conference (HD Boutique) in Miami, Fla. The award recognizes the best designed and most innovative products for the hospitality industry, and the Horizon LED task light was the only lighting product to be honored. As an award winner, Horizon will be showcased in the upcoming October issue of Hospitality Design magazine.

The first task light to utilize Thin Film LED Technology, the Horizon LED task light produces an ultra-wide footprint of warm, glare-free 3000K light—excellent for ergonomic illumination and beautiful light in any environment. Its built-in dimmer control offers seven levels of adjustable illumination to allow the user to customize light intensity according to each task. Engineered for incredible energy efficiency and a long life of service, it consumes only 11 watts of power and is rated for 50,000 to 60,000 hours of use.

Created by award winning designers Peter Stathis and Michael McCoy, the Horizon LED task light features a minimalist design that complements a wide range of interiors and features few moving parts, ensuring years of maintenance-free use. With no exposed wiring or mechanical fasteners, there is nothing extraneous to distract from the luminous quality of the light. It seamlessly balances performance and style to satisfy focused lighting needs in any environment.

HD Boutique also recognized Humanscale’s Diffrient World chair with one of two Honorable Mentions. Known for its superior functionality and unmatched environmental sustainability to provide the ultimate user-friendly sitting experience, the Diffrient World chair adds this acknowledgment to its growing collection of honors, including the Red Dot Best of the Best Award, a Gold IIDEX Innovation Award, a GOOD DESIGN Award, Interior Design magazine’s Best of Year Merit Award and the FX Interior Design Award.

Since its launch in 2007, Humanscale’s Hospitality Division has offered the growing hospitality market the opportunity to treat valued employees and guests to the exceptional comfort and health benefits of ergonomically designed products.
