Forget about the rumor floating around this morning about French designer Philippe Starck working on a “revolutionary” new product in collaboration with Apple. Sebastien Page from iDownloadBlog says that Starck is not working on a product, but likely on the design of a future Apple Store instead. Don’t worry though, because Apple is still prepared to “blow our minds” in 2012 with a new iPhone and iPod touch, new MacBook Pros, perhaps an Apple television set, and other products and services.
“According to a trustworthy source in France, Philippe Starck is actually working on a design for a future Apple Store,” said Page. “I wasn’t able to get more details out of my contact, but I do trust her. And from what I hear, this is hardly a secret in the small French world of design and architecture.”
