I miss the old acronyms. Remember VHS, VCR? or even older, LP? (ok, I am actually from the cassette generation, but my parents had LPs.) Now a new acronym has emerged on the scene…..LED. OK OK, this really isn’t a new acronym, LED technology or light-emitting diodes have been around for over 100 years. (or so Wikipedia tells me). HOWEVER…for the average consumer, LED just hit the radar. The hot new tech gift this holiday season…the LED television. Big, ultrathin and sexy. Life without an LED television is impossible. (LOL). Or so the marketing types want us all to believe.
In the world of office products and ergonomics, LED tech means an evolution in lighting fixtures and solutions for YOUR office workstation. Weird, but this is something I CAN get excited about (and most of our clients too). LED lights use less energy, emit less heat and are LEED credit eligible (for those who are counting). LED lighting is BUSINESS SEXY.
What is business sexy? Business sexy is something that makes the CFO go weak in the knees. Business sexy is about the bottom line. Business sexy makes everyone in the enterprise happy.
Several Ergonomic product manufacturers have new LED products to offer – we like Workrite’s Astra and Soleil task lights and their really cool (literally, it’s cool to the touch, no 2nd degree burns by moving the fixture) Verano under-mount magnetic light strip. All have been awarded our BUSINESS SEXY stamp of approval (and from our clients too). I think I am going to create a Business Sexy stamp for future use.
We await the arrival of Humanscale’s Element LED lamps. The product is not available YET, but the chatter is very positive. (see link below for Wired magazine POV on Humanscale) All we know is that Workrite has set the bar VERY HIGH….wait and see if Humanscale can dislodge the Astra, Soleil and Verano from our hearts.
