Apple's new futuristic, nearly all-glass, Cupertino, Calif. campus may be handsome, but it's causing some problems for employees. The building provides glass-based viewing portals of this park along with views of the landscape surrounding the building's exterior.
It's hard to imagine a more metaphor-packed scenario than Apple's products distracting its employees as they weave through a perfectly designed office and bang their faces into glass walls. And according to a new report from Bloomberg, the glass is so flawless and unobtrusive that employees keep walking into it.

Tillerson Says US-Turkey Relations are Boiling Over, Promises Cooperation
While recognizing Turkey's right to secure its borders, Tillerson urged Ankara to show restraint in its military operation in Syria.
Apple Park, the tech giant's new $5 billion headquarters, is home to tons of glass - including 45-foot tall curved panels which surround the building - which more than one distracted employee has smacked into, according to Bloomberg.
I'd imagine bumping into these glass panes hurt quite a lot, although it's not clear if Apple will be taking any actions to better protect employees. Maybe Apple employees, and all of us, should all just stop focusing so much on our phones, stay present in the moment, and walk looking straight ahead. "While it is a technical marvel to make glass at this scale, that's not the achievement".
The office was designed by Apple design chief Jony Ive and British architectural firm Foster + Partners. "The achievement is to make a building where so many people can connect and collaborate and walk and talk". However, these had to be removed because "they detracted from the building's design". However, another worker said other markings were already in place to identify the glass. Employees are not allowed to discuss anything related to Apple with outsiders. Thankfully, there are no reports of injuries at the campus on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's website. Walking into clear glass at the Apple Store continues to be a hazard, warns our own Michael Steeber. Apple did not provide comment in time for publication.
