The Loftie Clock is a revolutionary take on your morning alarm, designed to get the phone out of the bedroom. Complete with a dimmable display, nightlight, two-phase alarm, and custom content playable right on the device – including guided meditations, sound baths, breathwork exercises, sleep playlists, plus a variety of relaxing sounds. What’s equally important though, is everything it doesn’t do: Connect to your email, apps, and social media, with all the anxiety they bring along. Winding down and waking up with Loftie helps keep tech and life in balance.
Since launching on IndieGogo last year, Loftie has sold thousands of units; it was recognized in Real Simple’s 2021 Sleep Awards, Fast Company's Home Innovation Awards, was the 2020 holiday gift of choice for the Reddit staff; and it's available in the Goop Shop, Huckberry, Amazon, as well as MOMA design store.
Matt Hassett, Founder of Lofite, has always been an entrepreneur. In 2019, he began working on the project that eventually became Loftie at the design firm IDEO where he was an Entrepreneur in Residence. He participated in studies that promoted a healthier lifestyle, like digital detoxing and sakara diets. At the same time, he noticed his friends and colleagues doing things like deleting Instagram for the weekend, only to reinstate it again on Monday.
Matt couldn’t escape this trending desire for tech/life balance, so he started brainstorming solutions. After a few flawed attempts, an app that sent rewards for reduced screen time and a digital detox kit filled with health/wellness brands, Matt collected enough market research and feedback to hone in on one object that would be most helpful to consumers: the alarm clock.
Taking the knowledge he gained, he applied the IDEO research methodology to conduct studies on actual consumers sleeping and waking habits, while also working with specialists within the breathwork and meditation sphere to create the most intuitive and reliable product possible. The result is Lofite, a smart device that doesn’t rely on a smartphone, a revolutionary take on your morning alarm designed to get the phone out of the bedroom.
Matt Hassett has been an entrepreneur since birth, starting with the creation of a school-led newspaper in childhood.
