Modern Design: Apple’s New Stores in Paris and New York City

Apple Store – Carrousel du Louvre, Paris

Here at theMET, we’re huge fans of Apple. We love the the simplistic, yet detailed functionality of their products, along with their clean, modern design.

Apple's go-to store photographer, Roy Zipstein, recently photographed Apple's first store in Paris at the Carrousel du Louvre, and its fourth in New York City on the Upper West Side.
