Apple’s new spaceship campus that opened last year is one beautiful HQ. But the new campus apparently has a big problem.
The campus is almost entirely made out of glass panes, including the workspaces (“pods”) inside the building which are surrounded by glass panes. And that apparently resulted in some Apple employees bumping into these glass panes, reports Bloomberg.
The glass panes aren’t easily noticeable, especially to employees who are glued to their iPhone. Apple employees even went as far as sticking up post-it notes on these panes to help make them easily identifiable, but the design-conscious hardware maker later removed them as it was deteriorating the look of the building.
I’d imagine bumping into these glass panes hurt quite a lot, although it’s not clear if Apple will be taking any actions to better protect employees. For now, don’t text and walk, Apple employees.
