September 7, 2011  Refreshing Swisscom   While in Zurich, we dropped into Swisscom's Zurich flagship, a warm, welcoming environment that's intentionally anti-tech. Customers are reportedly happier with the experience - and may even enjoy an espresso while waiting.

February 5, 2011   Ten Years Ago.... LeSportsac - environments by Christopher Barriscale   "Whether the company's success can be attributed to the feng shui consultant who confirmed that the design plan was very compatible, the rediscovery of this product by trendy young hipsters, or just the quality of a well-made bag expertly combining form and function, LeSportsac's sky rocketing business can no doubt be in part accredited to the refreshing new store and LeSportsac headquarters and showroom."
