plan/ material detail

But if the Apple maintains its popularity, one day 50% of computer user will be using the Apple and the products will no longer make them unique.products will no longer make them unique.
In future, we will see the Apple products more often in our lives. To respond the demands, the future Apple store will be selling lifestyle in which the products are embedded. The assumption led me to design a series of the showrooms that represents peoples primary lives; private and work.
Addition to the lifestyle showroom, the personalizable products will also be a key for next generation of the Apple products. As will also be a key for next generation of the Apple products. As iPhone has been popular, thousands of accessories are available to individualize the products. The Capitol Hill store will be introducing a personalizing product design service,2
