Illustrating The Power Of Apple’s Innovation And Simplicity Concepts
Apple innovation and simplicity product concepts permeate Apple at all levels of thinking. Here are two examples of how this thinking plays out:
Example 1: iPad 2 Commercial
This iPad 2 video clip is a great example of how Apple’s “category-killer innovation” and “make complexity simple” concepts translate into user value. And, notice how even the video communicates the simplicity concepts in a very simple way.
Example 2: NYC Store Glass Cube
Most of you are probably aware of Apple’s iconic glass cube entrance to their flagship NYC store on Fifth Avenue. It has (or had) 90 individual glass panels.
In the summer of 2011 Apple began work on a $6.6 million upgrade of the plaza and glass cube. Apple has now revealed its plans for the cube with a new informational sign posted on the barrier surrounding the plaza, showing that the company is completely replacing the cube’s glass panels with new, larger panels that will also be “seamless” for a cleaner appearance.
To quote Apple “We’re simplifying the Fifth Avenue cube. By using larger, seamless pieces of glass, we’re using just 15 panes instead of 90.”
What more can we say? The concepts run deep throughout the organization. It is a different, non-traditional way of thinking for most organizations.
