We are beyond honored to get this recognition. As a scrappy, independently run firm, it’s incredibly validating to know our work stands with the best. And it’s even more validating to know the passion and drive our team puts in every day results in life-changing experiences for more people.
The recognition is meaningful on two levels: first, it tells us that our process, with its intense focus on the end user and emphasis on collaborative brainstorming, works. Second, as a small, tight knit team, every win and every award is a victory for all – because every single person at Loft played a role in bringing these designs to market.
So, cheers to design. Cheers to our incredible team. And cheers to our clients, who trust us to deliver innovative solutions that solve real problems for their customers. Thank you.

In April 2020, as the pandemic’s spread accelerated across the U.S., there was an urgent need to fight COVID-19. Because widespread testing would be essential to combating the virus, construction began on Mobile Medical Units with the support of Rhode Island Commerce and the Rhode Island National Guard. Speed was critical to this project’s success. From research and development to gathering materials and construction, everything had to be done promptly and with confidence in order to help frontline workers.The Mobile Medical Units were designed so they could be configured to meet clients’ needs and requests. Based on the different ways the Units would be utilized, the system has been configured to a two trailer system, a single trailer with multiple testing windows, and even a mobile office. This versatility continues to provide a great value to clients and communities in need during COVID-19.
