Pilkington Optiwhite®

Apple Store New York

Opened in May 2006 on Fifth Avenue in New York City, Apple's flagship store has a total area covering 4,000 square meters and also has 5 underground floors. With the exception of the entrance, the glass cube with a height of 32 feet, a concept which was invented by Steve Jobs and architect Bohlin Cywinski Jackson.

The cube consists of many multi-layered panels measuring 1,000 cm in height and 48 cm in length. The roof panels were supported by 10 horizontal glass beams with 24 vertical support walls connecting the glass panels of the facade.

The beams and support walls are made of Pilkington Optiwhite® glass with a low iron content, which reduces heat loss and the risk of destruction during temperature changes. The product has maximum light transmission and provides natural color reproduction, which is an important nuance, given that the main rooms are located underground.

The unusual entrance group allows the mall to become one of the most photographed attractions in Manhattan.
