Humanscale’s Element is a task luminaire designed by Mark McKenna. Output is said to be comparable to a 60 watt incandescent utilizing a single 7 watt LED lamp. Aside from being one of the more attractive examples of the category, there are some notable features which sets this apart.
The design seems to play opposite of the trend of super slim / flat arrays of LEDs. The head is ovoid in shape and is mounted in a gimbal configuration allowing a great range of position and aiming. The heatsink is exposed and treated as a dominant design element while serving to keep things cool. Using a single lamp eliminates the shadowing effect typical when using multiple sources in an array.
Element is initially available in white or silver for $399. Nineteen different mounting configurations were designed to accommodate all the major office cubicle systems, and the fixture will come with a universal DC power supply with replaceable blades allowing operation in any outlet worldwide.
