French chic and fashion go hand in hand, and having said that, you know for sure a streamlined product design from a company like Apple would definitely have devices that make your heart skip a beat (or two) whenever you lay your eyes on them. Well, France has its own fair share of stores that sell Apple devices, but there is a spanking new Apple Store in Aix en Province which is currently being built, sporting an all-glass enclosure from three sides, alongside a back wall in light-colored stone. This glass, just like many other things Apple, will be tailor-made by Apple’s suppliers – and don’t worry whenever the ground decides to do a little bit of “dancing”, as the building will be compliant to France’s new earthquake standards. Just in case, you know. I must say that this particular design is heavily inspired by the now famous all-glass cube in New York City which recently received a refresh. Considering how the new, nearly transparent store is located on an ancient cobblestone square, it should be one picturesque sight, offering a bold contrast between old and new architecture.
