Apple's second retail store in Bangkok, Thailand is set to have its grand opening soon, with Apple recently removing the building's art-filled privacy panels to showcase the inside of the store. You can download the art as a macOS or iOS wallpaper from Apple's store page.

The location previously appeared to be planned to open on July 25, as seen on original stenciling for the store's temporary paneling. It's unclear why Apple missed that date, but with the removal of the temporary paneling, as noted by Twitter users today, it appears that the store could open as soon as this weekend.

For now, Apple hasn't mentioned a specific date, and simply states that the store is "coming soon" on the retail site. The new store is in front of the Central World mall in Bangkok and it joins Apple's existing store in Thailand, Apple Iconsiam, which opened in November 2018.

The new store in Bangkok is a two-floor circular structure, housing wood product tables arranged in a ring shape around a central spiral staircase. Along the walls visitors will be able to browse various Apple accessories, like headphones and iPhone cases, while the second story is where Apple's typical "forum" area can be found, with a large video screen.

Wow, that curved wood must have cost a fortune, probably even more than the curved glass.
The glass is one piece, the curved wood is much more complicated, it changes in curves and angles the more you go up.

Is the round shaped building a unified style for new Apple stores globally? I remember seeing the pictures of a new Apple store in Beijing. It is a similar design. Modern and elegant.
