Apple’s widely awaited new campus is finally ready, and it’s exactly like what you’d expect.
Wired got an inside look at the campus and found an unlikely innovation: a pizza box. The company is striving for perfection everywhere and wants to inspire everyone from engineers to café managers to “aspire for ever-higher levels of quality and innovation.” Francesco Longoni, Apple’s Head of Food Services helped the company patent a box that will “keep to-go pizzas from getting soggy.”
The patent describes a container that is designed so that multiple containers can be stored in a stack to minimize storage space. The container is designed to “preserve and enhance the overall culinary experience.” The patent even describes various modifications, such as “selected portions of an interior surface of a base of the container can be elevated to provide a support platform” in order to prevent moisture from being trapped.
Another modification suggests “The container can also include openings in the lid that allow steam to escape from the pizza. Allowing such steam to escape from within the container further ensuring that the pizza does not become soggy through the re-absorption of moisture.”
Apple’s crazy new campus also includes other inventions, including toilets inspired by iPhones.
