NEW YORK—Humanscale’s Horizon has been accepted into the permanent collection of two of the world’s most esteemed museums—The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum—making a total of five museums nationally which feature the task light in their collections.

Horizon’s designers, Peter Stathis and Michael McCoy, have spoken directly to the inspiration behind this first use of Thin Film LED Technology™ in an innovative task light, saying, “Our goal in designing Horizon was to achieve an ultra-thin, luminous plane of light—made possible through years of research—and celebrate it by floating it above the desktop in a package of material and aesthetic efficiency.”

In addition to MoMA and the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt, Horizon was acquired by the Denver Art Museum and Kirkland Museum in Denver for their respective collections. The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis has also prominently displayed Horizon on their new lobby reception desks. These honors from all five museums mark additional notoriety in Horizon’s extensive, ever-growing list of accolades and accreditations, which also includes a Red Dot Award for Product Design, a 2012 IHA Innovation Award, a Gold IDEA Award and an IIDEX/NeoCon Canada Innovation Award, among many others.
