They put in office chairs, desks, potted plants, pictures and a bulletin board. The group says, despite the signage they used, they were not in cahoots with WeWork.

“Lots of people stopped to try out the booth, with different levels of skepticism,” the group wrote in a post about the stunt. “Unfortunately, no one signed up for [the] introductory $300/month rate,” they joked.
