Design has always been a fundamental part of Apple, it was something Steve Jobs was obsessed with and Apple devices should not only work well, they should also have a design and appearance that marks the differences. This design has sometimes been elevated to the art category, for example with the iMac G3, better known as “lamparita”, which is exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, MoMA, in New York.
There is no doubt that Apple's designs have become a trend, it happened with the iPod, then with the iPhone and now more recently it is happening with the AirPods. Apple usually opts for a unique design which ends up becoming the industry standard.
That is why we will not be surprised to see Apple devices as pieces of artHowever, the story we bring you today has, at least, a debate.
