A Partnership to Advance Lighting Technology
Starting in January 2010, Humanscale became the exclusive distributor of the Tolomeo LED task light to the U.S. contract market. That was the first seed of partnership between Humanscale and Artemide, the world leader in high-end residential and professional lighting and the manufacturer of Tolomeo. Now Humanscale and Artemide have joined forces to develop new, cutting-edge lighting products featuring the latest LED technology.
Jan Vingerhoets, CEO of Artemide U.S., said of the partnership: “Humanscale and their devotion to ergonomics and sustainability, coupled with their strong contract reach and ethical approach to business, make this partnership a natural evolution for Tolomeo and Artemide in the U.S. market.”
Humanscale Founder and CEO Robert King added, “For many years, I’ve considered Artemide to be one of the great brands in our industry, and in particular, the Tolomeo to be a true icon—a timeless and simple design representative of what we strive for at Humanscale. We now have an incredible offering of high-performance, energy-efficient, and aesthetically timeless task lights, with more exciting developments underway.”
Together, Humanscale and Artemide hope to push the evolution of lighting technology for years to come.
