“LOTH is great to work with. We worked on our latest project through the pandemic, but with virtual meetings and frequent project updates from the LOTH team, they never skipped a beat. They have a wide array of knowledge about office furniture and design, and how it plays a significant role with collaboration and productivity in the workplace. We value our relationship with LOTH and our new space looks amazing!”

Our designers practice design thinking with a human-centered approach. We embrace this concept in practice through empathy, listening, and evaluation. We must walk in our clients shoes in order to deliver a solution that works for the team that will “live” in the environment we create. Let us showcase our “why” behind this concept and how we practice it within our process.people at practice
