This could soon be Lego’s first Apple Store

A Hong Kong-based Lego fan has submitted a set proposal for an Apple Store built with the famous blocks. The design has quickly gone viral, and rightfully so.

When we think of Apple Store design, the first name that comes to mind is Forster + Partners, the architectural design firm founded in 1967 by Domus’ 2024 guest editor, Lord Norman Foster.

Not for this specific design, though, which instead carries the signature of Legotruman, a Hong Kong-based Lego fan whose standing in the global Lego enthusiast community is built upon popular Lego set proposals such as a reproduction of Van Gogh’s Starry Night and a Gundam Robot. They collaborated with 2A2A, another well-known designer who won a Disney-themed Lego set challenge.

The Apple Store set proposed by the duo has quickly gone viral, and it’s not hard to see why. It’s a surprisingly faithful reproduction of a typical Apple Store, with details such as a ground-to-roof glass facade, front tables full of MacBooks and iPhones, indoor trees, and a gigantic Apple Logo at the entrance. 

The design currently has over 2,300 supporters, suggesting it has a strong chance of reaching the 10,000 votes needed within the 600-day deadline to be considered by Lego. However, this does not guarantee it will be produced. Factors such as the playability of the kit and the feasibility of obtaining licenses are crucial for Lego to give the green light to a design. In this case, we doubt that Apple would ever be okay with letting Lego use its logo and brand for a set.
