Humanscale's Paramount Earns 2010 Gold Spark Award

Honor Recognizes Most Flexible, User-Friendly Multi-Monitor Display System


Karen Brooking


NEW YORK, October 29, 2010 — Paramount, Humanscale’s ultra-advanced multiple-monitor display system, received a Gold Spark from the Spark 2010 Design & Architecture Awards. Designed specifically for the trading desk environment, Paramount is the easiest, most flexible way to display multiple monitors in a dynamic environment.

The world’s first multilevel design competition, the Spark Awards welcomes designers from all levels and skill-sets—be they professional, novice or student.  Judged by an independent panel of design experts, the Spark Awards consider innovation, elegance, sustainability and durability, among other criteria.

Designed by the award-winning Humanscale Design Studio, Paramount offers rock-solid support that protects a company’s technology investment, regardless of the number or configuration of monitors. It can support anywhere from two to eight monitors on one or two rows with monitors weighing up to 35 pounds each or a 200-pound total load.  Thanks to an independent second-row crossbar, Paramount supports both widescreen and standard monitors in portrait or landscape views—virtually any monitor measuring up to 30 inches.

More importantly, Paramount installs and reconfigures in a snap, saving valuable time and manpower. Even the longest required change—from a two-monitor configuration to eight, or vice versa—takes less than five minutes. Everything needed to support reconfigurations is integrated into Paramount’s basic unit, including the second-row crossbar, so no tools or additional hardware is required.

Designed with sustainability in mind, Paramount contains 48% recycled and 99% recyclable content, and can be integral to the achievement of a number of valuable LEED credits. It is backed by Humanscale’s 15-year 24/7 warranty.

With this honor, Paramount joins Humanscale’s M2 Monitor Arm and T5 Point-of-Care Technology Cart as Spark Award winners.  For more information about Humanscale and its full range of innovative, ergonomic solutions, visit or call 800-400-0625.
