Gallery: Humanscale’s Horizon LED Task Light Packs High Design Into a S...

 
Humanscale's innovative task light represents an important step in lighting design: the adaptation of technological advances into minimal, exquisite products that anyone would be proud to own.

The Horizon represents the first utilization of Thin Film Technology in a task light. Several transparent layers of microscopically thin polycarbonate and optical film are surrounded by high-intensity LEDs to produce a wide swath of light with minimal fixture thickness. At the ICFF floor, we were immediately impressed with the effects of this technology on the quality of light emanating from Horizon. The ergonomic lamp emits a glare-free, even plane of light at a warm white 3000K color temperature that beautifully illuminates any environment.

Horizon’s built-in dimmer, with touch sensitive controls, provides additional energy savings with seven adjustable levels of illumination. At each different level, the LEDs flicker at different frequencies, leading to different brightnesses. At full brightness, Horizon consumes 11 Watts of power; at its lowest level of illumination, a nightlight feature operates at 10% of its full capacity, or merely one watt! This versatile feature results in an extended lamp lifespan of up to 60,000 hours.
