Humanscale makes all sorts of ergonomic chairs and gear for office workers.
The company has announced an interesting a green new task light called the Element. The light uses MCX LED technology with a single multi-chip LED that can produce a large light footprint. By using a single LED rather than multiple LEDs, Humanscale was able to eliminate shadows on the desktop.
