Some staff started to stick Post-It notes on the glass doors to mark their presence. The building's design was crafted by famed architect Norman Foster, taking major cues from Apple co-founder Steve Job's vision for the new headquarters.
After the smacking accidents, employees tagged the walls with sticky notes to avoid recurrence. "While it is a technical marvel to make glass at this scale, that's not the achievement", Jony Ive, Apple's design chief, told the magazine in May.
The impressive construction is ring-shaped and stands as the centerpiece of the building and it appears to overflow due to the curved panels of glass. Unfortunately, these papers reportedly disappear because "they detract from the building's design"-perhaps removed by agents of Apple's Gestapo wearing invisibility cloaks? He intended Apple Park to be the home of innovation for generations to come", Apple CEO Tim Cook said a year ago".
Steve Jobs asked British architect Norman Foster and his firm to design Apple's new headquarters in 2006. I don't expect the people designing cutting-edge hardware and software to be walking into glass walls; that's the kind of behavior I expect from birds. Another person familiar with the situation said there are other markings to identify the glass. After the unveiling of the first look, the campus architecture was praised by fans and publications for its sleek appearance.
People in glass offices should probably watch where they're going. She sued the company, arguing it should have posted a warning on the glass. In a few cases, customers have lodged legal complaints against Apple on health and safety grounds for walking into Apple's trademark glass architectures.
The Independent has contacted Apple for a comment. The suit was settled without any cost to Apple, according to a legal filing in early 2013.
