Loomi is an exploration into how the feeling of “just hang out in the same space” can be manifested at distance. We set out to create a minimally viable intimate interaction, one that is even less effort than a FaceTime call, and, crucially, allows you to stay present in your immediate physical surroundings by not requiring you to direct your attention at a screen.
