People Keep Walking Into Glass at Apple Park

People Keep Walking Into Glass at Apple Park

Apple Park campus, which was slated to open in April 2017, was open to employees early this year. A search on the site based on Apple's name in California found no reports of injuries at the company's new campus.

Apple's space-age Cupertino headquarters has 45-foot-tall panels of curved glass.

After the smacking accidents, employees tagged the walls with sticky notes to avoid recurrence. According to some reports, employees are busy looking at their iPhones before crashing into the "very clean" glass.

According to documents and sources, Apple has run into a problem at Apple Park: Because so much of the interior is made from glass - the walls and doors, for example - people are walking into the panes, sometimes painfully.

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.

Silicon Valley is known for moving fast and breaking things, but Apple Inc. may want its employees to slow down in order to not break themselves or the company's new $5 billion headquarters.

The Apple design guru Jony Ive considers Apple Park to be a masterpiece of design.

We don't want to make a mountain out of a mole hill, but the situation is concerning enough to employees that some of them opted to stick Post-It notes on glass doors as markers to indicate there is a transparent barrier.

Apple's spaceship campus has been lauded as an architectural marvel. But Apple management removed them because they didn't match the design of the building, Bloomberg reported. "The achievement is to make a building where so many people can connect and collaborate and walk and talk", Ive told Wired in May.

It is not clear how many incidents there have been, but at least seven people were reportedly injured on the first day after staff moved in. They asked not to be identified discussing anything related to Apple. She sued the company, arguing it should have posted a warning on the glass.

As you'd expect, Apple isn't commenting and won't let the general public into the building.
