Showcasing its commitment to sustainability, Humanscale, the global leader of ergonomic products for home, work and healthcare spaces, will exhibit at the Greening Government 2013 Conference and Exhibition on September 10 in London, U.K. Held at The Brewery Conference Centre, the 2013 event has a theme of ‘Delivering Change, Promoting Excellence’.
With a strong focus on sustainability, Humanscale designs products that use less raw material and fewer parts and contain recycled content. Humanscale believes that the highest level of functionality is achieved through simplicity, and its approach to sustainability is that the best design achieves more with less. All Humanscale products are designed and produced with an unwavering focus on their environmental impact.
Humanscale’s sustainability mission is reflected in the products it will exhibit at the conference. Humanscale’s height-adjustable table Float®, the Diffrient World® chair and the Element Disc™ task light will be on display.
Float meets the demands of healthier work environments with an unprecedented combination of adjustability for a vast range of heights (51 cm of height adjustability) and weights (up to 59 kg of desktop weight, including the tabletop), along with streamlined good looks. With a unique counterbalance mechanism, Float enables simple, one-hand weight adjustment, and constant-force height adjustment for ergonomic sit-stand usage—all without the use of an obstructive crossbeam or a cumbersome crank. Made for a long life, Float is composed predominantly of recyclable steel and is designed with minimal parts and manufacturing processes. Unlike electric-powered height-adjustable tables, Float is able to balance the table’s load without using energy, which makes it exceptionally sustainable.
The epitome of simplicity in a task chair, Diffrient World is made of just eight major parts and weighs only 30 pounds. It uses a revolutionary mechanism-free recline, which eliminates the need for manual adjustments. Diffrient World features Form-Sensing Mesh Technology that ensures perfect lumbar support for every user without the bulky and often uncomfortable external lumbar devices found on all other mesh chairs. The chair’s ultra-light weight and minimal-part design require significantly less raw material and fewer manufacturing processes than many other high-performance task chairs. Its durability and modularity further minimize its environmental impact to ensure a long life of service.
In addition to these solutions, Humanscale will exhibit a highly sustainable task light that offers customizable illumination and fingertip adjustability to accommodate all of the user’s needs. Providing complete user control, Element Disc features intuitive, smart dimming functionality, which affords the user seven levels of brightness and uses memory to save the last preferred light setting selected by the user. Creating an ultra-wide footprint of warm, glare-free light, Element Disc uses the innovative Thin Film LED Technology™ that was first manifested in the award-winning Horizon™ task light. For exceptional sustainability, Element Disc is equipped with a passive infrared (PIR) occupancy sensor, which automatically turns the light off or on when the user leaves or enters the area.
