If it's as foggy downtown as it is here, there won't be much visible.

Did anyone even catch a glimpse of these ‘fireworks’, I couldn’t even see the flashes of light because the fog made it so much brighter

I really want to see the completed look with the complimentary colored band in the lower three sections.

Was hoping the dark spot between the crown and the office floors would be illuminated on the finished product, it looks odd right now.

You would lose the vertical line on each side though...

It can and will be depending on the display...or at least it will be according to this.

The lower part of these wash lights are also used to fill in the otherwise
empty band between the occupied floors and the imagery. The color used
will complement the imagery above.

"All three of these lighting systems can display any color and, except for the
lower wash, will not be turned on while imagery is being presented on the
outside surface of the building."

I too was hoping the lower section would help blend the LED activity with the occupiable floors. Disappointing if they wont be on simultaneously. :-(

A peek inside: (more at the Business Insider link)

Quote:
Some of the floors at the 1,070-foot tower are still under construction. We took the elevator to the eighth floor, where Salesforce employees have moved in and made themselves at home.


People sit in rows of desks, which can be adjusted for any height. The color of the carpeting is meant to evoke pebbled paths for walkways and grassy areas for employee seating.


There are no desks fleshed against the walls, which a Salesforce spokesperson says is to maximize the amount of natural light coming into the room. The windows stretch 10 feet tall.


Salesforce Tower has a slender, tapering silhouette with curved corners. These nooks provide the perfect spot for a small team meeting or coffee with a company mentor.


A spokesperson says the seating areas on every floor are located where the views are best.


The eighth floor provides a stunning view of the rooftop park above the Transbay Transit Center, which features winding footpaths and botanical gardens. It's still under construction.


Salesforce Tower doesn't have a dining hall — a staple of most big tech campuses. A spokesperson says this was deliberate; the company wants to encourage employees to step outside and buy lunch from one of the many restaurants and stores in the neighborhood.


The kitchen and lounge area felt more like someone's living room than an employee lounge.


Every floor at Salesforce Tower has a meditation room, where employees can seek a moment of zen. There are floor pillows and books on mindfulness for instruction and inspiration.


An iPad plays guided meditations that last between five and 20 minutes three times an hour.


The company did away with the modern, minimalist design that's favored at big tech campuses like those of Google and Facebook, in favor of a homey, relaxed vibe.

Homey? It just looks like low-budget discount office furniture, and there's lots of empty space. I'm not impressed.

All that matters is how the Salesforce team feels about it and literally, everyone I know who works for them likes it.

^ Both of your comments can be equally true. There certainly are many other office buildings with more elegant or more clean interior design and decor, but at the end of the day, I think this fits into Saleforce’s culture better. It feels more cozy and less sterile than other office buildings.

You are almost never impressed by anything not your own idea. Furniture like this is available at low cost or high cost depending on quality. I suspect Benioff didn't go low quality. It's not my taste but it's functional, just like the mid-century modern style it resembles.

They also intentionally veered away from the prevelent tech modern look of open ceilings, coated beams, utilities, concrete, etc.
