Apple now has a new retail location known as Apple Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. What is unique about the company's new retail store is that it floats on water.
The store is Apple's third one in Singapore, after the first one named Orchard Road that opened in 2017, and the second one named Apple Jewel Changi Airport located in Singapore's world-famous retail sector of the country's transportation hub. Globally, Apple Marina Bay Sands is the company's 512th retail shop.
The Marina Bay Sands store exhibits the eccentric look of some kind of a spacecraft or a futuristic theater in the day time. The skyline is reflected in the glass panels of the store in the day light. At night time, the store comes alive in all its glory as it glows in a warm tone in front of the iconic skyline.
The rumours are indeed true! Apple Marina Bay Sands, the first Apple store in the world that floats on the water, is opening soon in Singapore.#AppleMarinaBaySands #Singapore #SingapoRediscovers #cityscape #architecture @Apple @marinabaysands @AP_Magazine @GettyImages pic.twitter.com/Awbgzo2qtO— Javan Ng (@javanng) August 24, 2020
There isn't much information about the store's interior. The shop hasn't opened yet, but is expected to open in the near future. Apple has also released a short promotional teaser video featuring the store's opening. The video reveals a custom graphic in the form of thin, light lines that spread across the orb-looking building at night time. The birds-eye view of the store makes it appear like a glass iris peering into the sky.
The information regarding the store's marketing tells that the store will follow the same measures for coronavirus found at other Apple stores in Singapore, including wearing masks, limited occupancy, and sanitization requirements.
