When Studio O+A were asked to design the interiors of the new San Francisco offices of Slack, they drew inspiration from the forest for the 7th floor, specifically fairy rings.
The fairy ring, that’s helped shaped different seating areas within the office, comes from the natural growth pattern of the large redwoods on the Pacific Crest Trail.
Each of the different seating areas has a circular shape with vertical elements to represent the trees.

Some of the seating has planters that wrap around the interior of the circle, while others have been slightly sunken to provide added interest.
