Introducing the Humanscale Hub
Humanscale Launches Online Platform to Offer Virtual Showroom Tours, Digital Content, Product Announcements and More(June 8, 2020 –New York, NY) Humanscale is launching its new Humanscale Hub, a virtual destination, featuring showroom tours, product announcements, a library of video content, and an inspiration gallery. Officially live today, the Humanscale Hub will be updated with new content regularly to better inform and engage with customers in an increasingly digital world.
Virtual Showroom Tour
A highlight of the Humanscale Hub includes a virtual showroom tour. While many customers are currently unable to tour showrooms in person, Humanscale’s virtual showroom will allow visitors to virtually explore the space and engage with the following featured products.
Humanscale will showcase a selection of new and updated products in the Hub. Its new WellGuard Separation Panels, Summa executive chair, Nova task light with a wireless charging base and the M10 Monitor Arm with a Triple Crossbar, all shown below, will be featured highlights, among others.
NEW WellGuard Separation Panels
This month, Humanscale debuts its new WellGuard Separation Panels, enhancing a safe return to the workplace. The new panels reduce airflow between workstations, accommodate workspace privacy and can help to reduce workplace distractions. They are available in clear or frosted plastic resin and in felted PET.
Humanscale’s new executive chair, Summa is thoughtful design at its best. Offering ergonomic support and comfort, Summa envelops each unique sitter with its sculpted shape, which is punctuated by smooth, seamless upholstery. This sophisticated chair is made-to-order and hand-upholstered by highly experienced hands. Almost entirely customizable, Summa is available in multiple configurations, wood finishes, and chrome-free leather upholstery options that are healthy for sitters and the environment.
Nova with Wireless Charging Base
Now available with a new wireless charging base, the Nova task light offers endless adaptability in a striking, sculptural form. Featuring a custom lens and a large-array multi-chip LED, Nova creates soft, glare-free light. This inventive design protects the eyes against strain, faithfully renders colors and produces a single shadow on the work surface. Offering effortless, precise control, Nova brightens and dims with the touch of a finger. Its advanced occupancy sensors automatically turn the light off when no one is around to conserve energy.
M10 Monitor Arm with Triple Crossbar
Part of Humanscale’s revolutionary monitor arm line, the M10 instantly improves the comfort, health and productivity of any workspace. A strong triple crossbar allows M10 to hold up to three monitors or 48 pounds –all while maintaining a simple and sleek design.
The Humanscale Hub will also feature a video library. At launch, content will range from ergonomic tips for working from home; a celebration of the iconic Freedom chair, designed for Humanscale by Niels Diffrient; a showcase of Humanscale’s online ergonomics software ergoIQ; and a demonstration of its revolutionary line of monitor arms. New videos will be continuously uploaded in the coming weeks.
The video library will also highlight live NeoCon programming with partners, like this one:
From Ocean to Office: A New Path for Plastic
A Conversation featuring Jane Abernethy, Humanscale’s Chief Sustainability Officer | June 12th
In this session, experts will explore how design can provide a solution to address the issue of ocean plastic. As society continues to shift from a linear to a circular economy, reframing waste plastic as a resource is vital. Doing so in new product manufacturing allows conscientious designers to specify products that can directly help reduce ocean plastic. This seminar will use case studies to outline how sourcing ocean plastics actually happens, and what the impact is on local communities.
Panelists include Kendall Starkman, Initiative Manager at Lonely Whale, Mikhail Davis, Director, Technical Sustainability, Americas at Interface, and Jane Abernethy, Chief Sustainability Officer at Humanscale.
The Humanscale Inspiration Gallery
A curated gallery of images selected to inspire the design community and reveal creative design solutions will round out the Humanscale Hub. The lush selection of lifestyle images showcases Humanscale designs in a wide array of contract and residential environments.
