We are

We believe in
CREATIVITY within all

Our starting point at Loftwork is to recognize the creator in everyone.

Creativity is not the preserve of a talented few. A creator can be anyone who chooses to act out of curiosity and imagination.
Loftwork believes in the power of creativity within all. Manifest everyone’s creativity and the world will be richer and more interesting for it. We always start from here.

Unlock potential

We work with others to create a more vibrant society,
unlocking future potential by thinking outside today’s norms.

Loftwork partners with companies, universities, cities and communities, helping them tackle some of their biggest challenges by bringing together the creativity of all those involved.
Opening up projects and organizations to outside talent and different perspectives leads to new ideas and unexpected opportunities, sowing the seeds of future business. By taking a creative look at prevailing ideas and customs, we help our partners explore the future they’d like to create.
What’s common sense today will not be tomorrow. That’s why we never stop searching for the hidden potential in people, organizations and communities to join together in making the world a more vibrant, exciting place.

we do

We work with forward-thinking partners to re-examine social norms and give shape to future possibilities. Our practice is project-based, ranging from digital platforms and services to urban and space design to community management. The key element in each project is a highly diverse team. All it takes then is a process to ignite creativity and a mechanism for sustaining that activity over time.

  • Design Projects

    We’re in the business of project design, not product design. From research that interrogates norms to methodology for breaking free from convention, we design processes and experiences that mobilize everyone’s creativity to address some big unanswered questions.

  • Activate Communities

    Since its inception, Loftwork has been nurturing a global community of creators through open collaboration, both online and offline, and a vision that inspires empathy and transcends hierarchical boundaries. Drawing on our experience in creating places for co-creation, we bring communities to life with our mission to open up existing wisdoms and emerging technologies.

  • Create Ecosystems

    All projects must end, but their potential can continue to unfold in daily life through the creation of an ecosystem. At Loftwork, we look beyond immediate results and instead build mechanisms that support the future growth of people, places and organizations. While projects can spark discovery, systems deliver long-term value-creation.

Our Profile

Loftwork is a creative company that believes in "creativity within all." Through co-creation with creators, businesses, communities, and academia, we create the value of the future. Loftwork operates various platforms such as FabCafe, a creative community hub and digital fabrication cafe, MTRL (“Material”), which aims for innovation in the field of materials and technology development, and AWRD (“Award”), a co-creation platform for creators and companies.
