Apple design chief Jony Ive recently sat down for an interview with design, architecture, and fashion magazine Wallpaper to discuss Apple Park, Apple’s newest campus in Cupertino, California which he had a hand in designing, and the iPhone X, Apple’s newest device.
The iPhone X, Ive says, was designed to serve as a vessel for software, with a design that melds into the background. Apple’s design team has always aimed to “get design out of the way.” “We try to define a solution that seems so inevitable that it does recede,” he said. In the future, Ive believes the iPhone X will offer capabilities it doesn’t have now because software is always evolving, something he finds intriguing and fascinating.
Ive’s full interview with Wallpaper is well worth reading and offers further discussion about the Apple Park campus and the attention to detail that went into its design. It also looks further at the various elements of Apple Park, including the Steve Jobs theater, the landscaping, and the configuration of the building.
