Another note about WORK and their listing today on the NYSE: they chose to do a direct listing, which means that the allocation of the new shares is determined by a machine, there is no lockup, and simply put the highest bidder wins.

But slack has the violet vibe. It’s mellow and bold at the same time.
“In the Arabian night, an ethereal violet mysteriously blooms. Beloved of the British flower bed, its elusive scent of darkly purple petals and violet leaves wraps around oud and white musk, anchored by warm, sophisticated amber.”
“The flux of movements in the interior space has been a major theme from the beginning on, and the carpet was personalized as an interior map that charts the different functional areas by the use of printed texts and paths. This adds to the fact that the entire space can be read as a communicating body that facilitates the movement within it and the reading of the separate areas. The strong colors chosen for highlighting the space set landmarks in the black surrounding. For the whole interior design we strived to create a strong conceptual identity around the theme of the Blackbox, defining all the elements that make up the whole, the logo, the furniture ant the entire interior context.”
“The metal folding table features a round tray with the symbolic Flora print, a design originally created for the House by artist Vittorio Accornero in the '60s. The names of metaphorical terrains love must navigate are listed underneath the Gucci logo. The terrains are from the 1654’s 'La Carte de Tendre' — the map of an imaginary land conceived by French novelist Madeleine de Scudéry. Set atop three legs, the table can be folded and features a ring at the top to hang.”
