    Our Story

    2019

    From Generative AI to Immersive Worlds

    We started developing a new technology inspired by a genuine desire for deeper human connection during the lockdowns of COVID-19.

    Journee was founded in late 2019 by Thomas Johann Lorenz and Christian “Mio” Loclair, with a vision to push the boundaries of technology through AI. Their crowning achievement was Helin, the world's first AI-designed sculpture, crafted from Italian marble. But COVID-19 made it impossible to unveil this extraordinary AI-designed masterpiece within esteemed museums and galleries, leaving the team unable to showcase the global sensation that Helin truly is.

    However, the setback only fueled our determination to find a solution exhibiting Helin globally in the quality that it deserves. The idea of a virtual museum was born. And it became a pivotal decision for the future of the whole company. Inspired by its success, Journee evolved into enabling branded immersive spaces for enterprises that would capture hearts and minds alike.

    We're AI born: A sneak peek into our origin from the Lumen Prize AI award winner - Helin

    If an aesthetic object is created without any human purpose, do we witness an accidental product of nature or do we perceive new forms of artificial intentions? The sculpture Helin embodies an organic data mirror emerging from our collective historical heritage. Our technical approach is based upon a novel procedure for Deep Learning in 3D space. The corresponding custom network architecture is trained on 120.000 historical sculptures and generates new alternative bodies 30 times a second. We enable insights into historical, spatial data of human expressions and translate this assembled intelligence into a natural and tangible artefact of heavy dark marble.

    2023

    Going global and defying the limits of what’s possible

    After only three years, Journee has evolved into a globally acclaimed company, delivering immersive web applications to businesses across the globe. Our immersive worlds have earned widespread recognition for their exceptional quality and business impact, making us the leading B2B solution provider and enabler in the immersive web Industry.

    The pandemic brought significant changes in the way people interact, work, shop, and socialize. However, the internet has yet to fully adapt to these evolving needs and behaviors. To cater to younger generations and meet the expectations set by the thriving gaming industry, the internet needs a fundamental transformation - and this transformation has already begun.

    Our mission is to elevate the online experience and the time spent on the internet. In just a short span, Journee has successfully empowered top brands such as BMW, Clinique, Vogue Business, and many others with Immersive Web Applications that have proven far more impactful than traditional 2D web experiences.

    2030

    A big part of what we do online every day will be Immersive

    The future of the internet presents a rising volume of immersive and more engaging applications. We will be less glued to 2D screens and more involved in three-dimensional forms of interactions. Most of our online time will be spent socializing, learning, shopping, and working in digital environments we walk into with our avatars.

    The evolution of technology has led to the creation of immersive online experiences that have fundamentally transformed how we interact with the digital world. This presents an opportunity to create immersive virtual realities that inspire, uplift, and empower people globally.

    Our technology has the power to do that. We bring people together in new ways. We are committed to creating inclusive online experiences that empower and celebrate every human being, and to accelerating access to beautiful new digital realities for people worldwide, regardless of background, location, or status.
