Niels Diffrient's designs are grounded in the philosophy that form follows function. His work has spanned generations, consistently looking past trends to reinvent the tools we use for daily living.
With an academic foundation in design and architecture and a degree from Cranbrook Academy, Diffrient channels his knowledge of engineering, architecture, and human factors into the creation of highly functional and aesthetically timeless designs.
From his early work with the studios of Eero Saarinen, Marco Zanuso, and Henry Dreyfuss to his current work with Humanscale, Diffrient's visionary talent has been widely recognized. Included among his many honors are the 2002 National Design Award from the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, and the 1999 Chrysler Design Award. In recent years, Diffrient has focused his energies on designs for the office environment, particularly seating--a category in which he has pioneered numerous breakthroughs, from pneumatic cylinders for seat height adjustment to weight-activated automatic recline.
Creating a more comfortable place to work.
Task lighting is an integral part of the ergonomic workstation, and each of Humanscale's task lights provides exceptional levels of bright, comfortable light. Yielding both ergonomic and economic benefits, Humanscale's comprehensive lighting line fits any needs, whether you desire performance, efficiency, ease of use, or all of the above.
Excellent task lighting
I purchased the Diffrient Task Light to illuminate my work area. Overhead lighting in my office is dim.
The light's arm is easy to adjust, and stays where you put it. The light was easy to put together, and I am very satisfied with the light it puts out, and where it puts the light.
The materials in the light are not as high end as I would have expected at this price, but they do the job and plastic may be necessary, given the height of the lamp. Metal may be too heavy, and might get hot.
The light is taller than normal, which I like. Some might object to the light being "in their eyes" but the shield adjusts to prevent just that. Overall, I feel I made a good purchase.
