The stage designer was Joni Ive and his team. The development of sketches took several months. The project was named Apple Stage and is made of 30 components, specially processed for easy assembly and disassembly, but consists of more than 25 thousand parts. In a recent interview, Ive explained the importance of rainbow for Apple culture.
[The scene] has a resonance with our rainbow logo, which has been a part of our identity for many years. Rainbow is a positive and joyful expression of some of our values. And I think one of the main reasons why the idea so immediately resonated with us is the form – the connection from the point of view of aesthetics. Semicircle so naturally combined with the ring.
