Apple’s “spaceship” Campus 2 headquarters has one rather painful flaw. According to Bloomberg, the glass walls littered throughout the ring-shaped office are so spotless that employees keep walking into them.
As well as the 45-foot-tall curved panels of glass that surround the building, located in Cupertino, California, there are also glass work spaces inside, dubbed “pods.” “Apple staff are often glued to the iPhones they helped popularize,” the report reads. “That’s resulted in repeated cases of distracted employees walking into the panes, according to people familiar with the incidents.”
Some employees have reportedly taken to using Post-It notes to mark the most dangerous of the glass walls, but sources have told The Next Web that these are removed by senior members of staff because they ruin the design aesthetic.
The building was crafted by famed architect Norman Foster, who set out to immortalize a vision that Apple co-founder Steve Jobs had years earlier. In 2011, Jobs described the building “a little like a spaceship landed.” Jobs has also been credited for coming up with the aforementioned glass pods. Take a closer look around the building here.
