French Designer Says Apple Will Reveal Something “Revolutionary” Within Next 8 Months (Update 2)

Phillippe Starck

A new report claims that French designer Phillippe Starck spoke during an interview saying that Apple will reveal a new product within the next eight months. He also calls it “revolutionary.”

He was speaking on a radio interview with France Info, and website HardMac picked up on it. He said, “Indeed, there is a big project together which will be out in eight months,” adding that he would not say more because of Apple’s notoriously secret ways of operating. He also said that the product is “quite revolutionary.”

Apple has been rumored to be working on a TV set for some time, it’s not clear if that’s what he’s talking about. Oh well, we won’t know for a while.

Starck said that he visited with Steve many times, and now even visits Laurene Powell when he is in California.

There’s no more info on that, but it’s interesting nonetheless.

(Update) Some reports say that the project is likely just an Apple Store designed by Starck. (link)

(Update 2) Apple has chimed in. (Link)
