Luxury today is about how something makes you feel, it’s emotional and visceral, and about comfort, ease, convenience as well as being freed from distractions and hassles and allowing more free time to do the things you really care about … Absolute freedom, to me, is contentment, emotional wellbeing, feeling good, protected and looked out for,” he writes.
The foyer might be for many who “come to work but have fun as well,” with one thing the release dubs, a “SOCIALIZE ON DEMAND” idea. The place additionally compares its degree of service to that of “Amazon and Apple, and how they have mastered customer service and providing support and guidance when needed in an instant. At PUBLIC, like them, we are customer and product obsessed.”
