Shuzo Fujimoto’s Apple is one of his best-known designs. Though one of his relatively few figurative models, structurally it is deeply geometric, being based on an icosahedron. Representing a smooth, rounded object this faithfully was quite an achievement at the time. The bottom part (hidden from view) uses a very smart solution to lock the model, give it a rounded look, and a stable base for it to stand on at the same time, and is quite similar to those used in Fujimoto’s boxes.
