Etsy's new Brooklyn headquarters is less than a year old, but it already feels lived in. It has colorful, comfortable alcoves set off from main workspaces, and Etsy sellers' artwork dots the spacious concrete halls. (There's even a mural constructed from old office desks and a chess table, made by a seller who uses a pedal-powered table saw.) But it's also technologically intricate; among its features, it tracks real-time energy, solar and water usage.
