Apple Central World, Apple’s second and largest retail outlet in Thailand, is all ready to conduct its grand opening Friday, 31 July 2020. Apple offered an early look to tease the audience on Tuesday. The outlet is located in Ratchaprasong, Bangkok.
Apple knows the importance of presentation and hence has put in a lot of effort designing their new home in Thailand. The store includes a distinct all-glass design topped by a cantilevered “Tree Cover” roof.
According to AppleInsider, it is harking back to the round, glass-supported pavilion located above Apple Park’s Steve Jobs Theater, the design of Apple Central World is a primary for Apple’s retail division.
Once inside, customers can travel between two levels via a spiral staircase that wraps around a timber core or riding a unique cylindrical elevator clad in mirror-polished stainless steel.
The guests can enter through the ground or upper level. It is directly connected to the SkyTrain and the city’s largest shopping center. It consists of two stories with a central spiral staircase that winds around a timber core.
The unique style includes the latest features of Apple including a Forum, Boardroom, and freestanding displays. A big video wall upstairs sits in the entrance of the shop’s Discussion board, whereas product shows span each flooring.
The Boardroom sits in the lowest level of the store and will provide entrepreneurs, developers, and local business owners a dedicated space to receive personal advice and guidance from the Apple team.

“We’re excited for guests to find this actually one-of-a-kind retailer in Ratchaprasong. With our future Right this moment at Apple classes and an exceptional group able to welcome the group with distinctive service and help, we will not await our clients to expertise Apple Central World.”
