The Loook Industry Story
After experiencing too much f***ing noise. Too many interruptions. So many distractions. So little comfort. Trying to do good work can suck and forget about taking a relaxing break.
In 2009. Two young designers sat in a noisy lounge, struggling to discuss the latest design trends. The surrounding buzz turned their disscussion to the mounting pressures of modern life: the noise, the distractions, the inability to concentrate, the difficulty of conducting conversations, the “always-on” culture of mobile lifestyles.
In the moment of inspiration, Ivar Gestranius and Kevin Lahtinen started sketching out ideas for furniture that could help distracted people find privacy in busy places.
Today, going beyond privacy, Loook also brings new innovative design ideas that encourage interaction and collaboration. Through their thoughtful designs, Loook adds creative new ways for employees to work, both on their own and in teams. Loook also transforms public spaces to make them more appealing, useful, and loved.
Thrive well everywhere
Loook uses design to expand the range of possibilities for people who need to get work done, or to take a relaxing break, both in the office and while on the move. From discrete private spaces for individuals, to cozy social spaces for groups, they give modern work places and public spaces the advantages of home. Loook uses a global design language that blends the natural woods, eco-friendly materials, and crafted durability of their Nordic design heritage, with the universal emotional triggers of dynamic shapes and beautiful textures.
