Humanscale’s Diffrient Work Light II a Winner

Task Light is Both Ergo- and Eco-Friendly

NEW YORK, October 31, 2008 — Humanscale’s Diffrient Work Light II is featured in this month's issue of Buildings Magazine as a Citation of Excellence Winner in Building’s annual Product Innovations Awards.
A versatile task light featuring a traditional screw-in socket to support a wide variety of bulbs, including the latest environmentally conscious compact fluorescent bulbs—which are more energy-efficient than LEDs—the Diffrient Work Light II maximizes the efficiency of CFL technology to provide cool, long-lasting illumination.
Boasting sleek good looks and the longest reach on the market, the Diffrient Work Light II is precision-designed and engineered with a perfect internal counterbalance. One-touch positioning—without the friction knobs or rigid joints found on other task lights—enable users to easily move and angle the light exactly where they need it most.
Available with a single or double arm, the Diffrient Work Light II features a sleek, cone-shaped shade to improve illumination and prevent glare. Made primarily of aluminum, the light contains 90% recycled and recyclable content and can be used to earn valuable LEED credits.
