The 12 Days Of Apple Stores

DAY 10

Midwestern US

Apple Michigan Avenue

In 2018, Apple Michigan Avenue in Chicago won an Award of Merit from the International Association of Lighting Designers. Lighting design was critically important for the flagship store, which is enclosed by glass on all four sides. Architects Foster + Partners used a physically-based rendering engine and HDR monitors to simulate how daylight would mix with interior artificial light.

Just like your iPhone uses True Tone and Night Shift technology to automatically adjust the display’s color temperature, the light fixtures at Apple Michigan Avenue dim in the evening and transition to a warmer hue as the sun sets.
