The floor is sloped, and benches are built into the structure, so you’re never really sure what you’re looking at. People can sit and have a discussion, lie on the slope, or view the product. We hope this will be a place where commerce will not only be about selling but about exchanging information, and nine months is long enough that things can really happen here.”
