As designers, we always try to strike a balance between these three, however, it was clear from the panel discussion that feeling is particularly important for the experiential seeking members of co-spaces. After all, it's partly what they are paying for. If things don't function properly that affects the experience members have of the space. Things just have to work, it's as simple as that.
Furthermore, you're joining a community of like-minded individuals, creating memorable moments together, you expect to find making friends easy. One way of achieving this goal was highlighted by Michael Faulkner, at Decorex, that "Comfort comes first when we are trying to draw conversations out of people and allow them to connect." Co-workers like the pic' n' mix nature of sumptuous social sofas next to ergonomic office chairs and desks. They have clear options for work and play. The relaxed mix makes them comfortable, opening them up to the two c's of co-working; conversation and collaboration.
