NEW YORK, December 3, 2010— Humanscale’s Horizon received a People’s Choice Award at the 2010 NeoCon East, which ran October 28-29 at the Baltimore Convention Center. Sponsored by Designer Pages, the People’s Choice Award honors the best new products, as determined by the attendees at NeoCon East.

Selected from more than 100 new products, Horizon earned a People’s Choice Award with its advanced technology, minimalist aesthetics and easy-to-use, intuitive features.  It was the only lighting product to be awarded. Adhering to Humanscale’s design philosophy that good design achieves more with less, Horizon was designed for uncomplicated use, maximum comfort, a long serviceable life and a minimal environmental footprint.

The first task light to utilize Thin Film LED Technology, Horizon 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 intensity according to each task. Engineered for incredible energy efficiency and a long life of service, Horizon 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, Horizon’s minimalist design 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 to distract from the luminous quality. Horizon seamlessly balances performance and style to satisfy the focused lighting needs in any environment.

Horizon adds the NeoCon East People’s Choice Award to its growing collection of accolades, which includes a Bronze IIDEX Award, a Buildings magazine Citation of Excellence and a Best of Boutique Award.
