Apple opens world's first retail store that floats on water in Singapore; see pics

iPhone maker Apple has opened its first floating retail store in Singapore's Marina Bay Sands that sits directly on the water.

The first store located at the Knightsbridge building along Orchard Road was opened in 2017 and the second outlet situated at Jewel Changi Airport, was launched in July last year.

The interior of the glass is lined with custom baffles, each uniquely shaped to counter sun angles and provide a nighttime lighting effect.

With trees lining the interior of the dome, the green garden city of Singapore flows into the store, providing additional shading and soft shadows through the foliage.

The Forum is centered around a video wall, which will serve as the stage for 'Today at Apple' sessions featuring Singapore's artists, musicians, and creators.

The retail outlet also has an underwater boardroom located on the lower level of the store where entrepreneurs and developers interested in receiving training and advice can meet with Apple team members.
