Lofe is a coffee table that searches to find the balance between form, mass and material. Lofe has a low balanced stance and a large silhouette that attempts to bring a sense of tranquility into the room. Because mass can be perceived as loud, she wanted to contrast the weight with the softness of fabric to balance the form. It is necessary to find a space where people can disconnect from technology and find a space for people to truly relax. Julie Hong began to search different elements that makes us feel a sense of tranquility and peace. Two elements she discovered were heavy and soft; heavy weight can be translated as a sense of peace whether it is visually big or exaggerated or actual weight of an object.
