This spring, mall behemoth Westfield is debuting a first-of-its kind concept that combines retail, tech and innovation. Bespoke is a 40,000-foot space located in San Francisco’s buzzing Westfield Centre where retail-tech brands can cowork, demo products and host events.
The sleek coworking space features private and shared desks, high-speed Wi-Fi, a kitchen and a rock-climbing wall (very Silicon Valley). Meanwhile, the demo space is designed to showcase developers’ latest creations and test products on shoppers, and the event space can host up to 1,200 people. It is, as one journalist put it, “the ultimate retail laboratory.”
