Prize Descriptions

The Nova task light brings functionality and beauty to the everyday office. This highly versatile LED light combines industry-leading levels of light output and adjustability - both in terms of positioning and brightness - with a contemporary design. Nova holds Energy Star 2.0 certification and contributes to LEED, WELL and Living Building Challenge certificates. Nova is available in White, Light Gray and Black.
Humanscale’s Horizon 2.0 implements the latest LED technology to produce its signature, ultra-thin plane of light with greater efficiency. The Horizon 2.0 uses TPU material, a PVC alternative, in its power supply. It also holds Energy Star 2.0 certification. At the base of the task light, a seamless touch interface offers more precise control to adjust brightness. As a result, this task lamp features a cleaner overall aesthetic to complement its elegant, slim base. Horizon 2.0 is available in five vibrant colors: Bronze Gold, Silver, Jet Black, Arctic White, Twilight Blue and Morning Pink.
