[Breaking] French Designer’s New Apple Project is Just an Apple Store

Earlier we told you about renowned French designer Philippe Starck’s radio interview, saying he was working on a “revolutionary” new project with Apple. Quickly many began to speculate what this new Apple-born project could be.

Our minds went in every direction thinking of what new product could come from this rumor. Well it turns out it may be nothing more than a fancy design for a future Apple Store. This isn’t a bad thing just kind of a let down for me. But that’s what I get for buying into juicy rumors

A recent post from Sebastien Page of iDownloadBlog noted:

According to a trustworthy source in France, Philippe Starck is actually working on a design for a future Apple Store. I wasn’t able to get more details out of my contact, but I do trust her. And from what I hear, this is hardly a secret in the small French world of design and architecture.

According to a Google’d translation, Philippe said, ”For seven years I came to see him [Steve Jobs] once a month in Palo Alto.” Apparently they had a friendship going on… some kind of bromance. So much that Philippe said he still meets up with Steve’s wife Laurene Powell and keeps in contact.

So I guess we’ll have to wait to find out what this project could possibly consist of.

What do you think?
