Element Light by Humanscale

Humanscale Element Light Features

The Element represents the next generation of environmentally sustainable, ergonomic task lights. Its numerous features represent a compilation of recent innovations in the field of task lighting. With unmatched flexibility, the Element Light has an extremely ergonomic design. It is also the first of its kind to meet the Department of Energy's criteria for an LED task light.

    1. Counterbalance design makes adjusting the Element Light's position extremely easy (it can be moved with 1 finger), with no locking mechanisms or knobs to turn

    1. Compact design folds up easily when not in use, meaning the Element fits under overhead bins and takes up a minimum amount of desk space when not in use

    1. 360-degree swivel mechanism from the base allows you to twist the direction of the light anywhere you want

    1. 19 mounting options to suit any working environment (call us to hear about all the options)

    1. 135-degree front-to-back head tilt and 90-degree side-to-side head rotation for exceptional personal lighting flexibility

  1. Series of "fins" shed heat to prevent overly hot temperatures, a common problem for many task lights. The Element Light stays cool to the touch.

Additional Element Features:

    • Revolutionary MCX LED Technology - the first LED light to use a single-element multi-chip LED eliminates the multiple-shadow effect, a problem common with traditional LED lights

    • Neutral white 3500 Kelvin light consumes only 7 watts of power

    • 60,000 lifespan with a replaceable LED bulb

  • Pivot/swivel points at the base, stem, and head yield unmatched adjustability

You may be surprised to hear a desk lamp described as "ergonomic", but in fact, many ergonomics-related health issues, such as poor posture and eyestrain, result from inadequate lighting. When the amount of light cannot be adjusted, say, for instance, when overhead incandescent lighting is used, the worker must adjust his or her body accordingly.

This often results in Computer Vision Syndrome- a condition affecting up to 90 percent of computer users, causing eyestrain, dry eyes, blurred sight, and headaches. The Humanscale Element Light eliminates this ergonomic problem through its adjustable design and its MCX LED Technology.

Traditional LED desk lamps cast multiple shadows across a work surface due to the number of bulbs, resulting in unnecessary eyestrain. With advanced MCX LED technology, the Humanscale Element Light mimics the light footprint of a traditional single-source bulb and casts just one shadow.

    Comments about Humanscale Element Light:

    I cannot say enough good things about this product or about Smart Furniture. I'm going to sound like a paid spokesperson, and there is just no way to avoid that when you are so satisfied with the product and service. Firstly, on the service front, I came to Smart Furniture after being thoroughly exasperated with another reseller's poor service. This particular light has mounting options listed on the manufacturer's website that didn't seem to align completely with the options listed on any of the reseller's websites (Smart Furniture included). The other reseller was completely unhelpful in answering my questions about the mounting options. Smart Furniture's representatives, by large contrast, were extremely helpful, very polite, and very understanding regarding the confusion over the mounting options. In the end, the option that I wanted was not one offered on the website, but the Smart Furniture representative was able to modify my web order after placement and ensure that I got exactly what I wanted. In terms of the product, it is beyond most of my expectations. It takes up almost no space on my desk with the 2 piece mounting clamp, it looks outstanding, it's incredibly light weight, it's incredibly cool (not hip, but cool from a lack of heat perspective - my last desk lamp could have doubled as a chicken roaster), and it is easily and highly adjustable. My only concern is the bulb life. I don't really know what happens when the bulb burns out, because I don't know that it takes any standard replacement bulb.
