    The post Steve Jobs era at Apple has many wondering what the future will bring for the company known for its innovative design and for changing so many industries.

    Outside of new CEO Tim Cook, the light of life without Jobs quite possibly won't shine any brighter than on design team lead and senior vice president Jonathan Ive.

    The Englishman known to his friends as "Jony" was hand-chosen by Jobs to lead his design team shortly after the Apple co-founder rejoined the company.

    Together the duo has been credited with the design concepts for the MacBook, the iPhone, the iPad, the iPod, the Powerbook G4, the G4 Cube and more.

    Recently the 44-year-old's work will become official works of art. Ive's work along with Apple's design innovation in general is the subject of a new art exhibit at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe (Arts and Crafts) in Hamburg, Germany.

    The show features 300 exhibits, many of which center on Apple's designs. This is not the first time Apple has had its work featured in an art museum.

    New York City's Museum of Modern Art and the Georges Pompidou Center in Paris have both featured the Cupertino-based company's work in shows before.

    If you can't get out to New York, Paris or Hamburg to check out any of the shows, you can take a virtual tour of the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe 's exhibit on its iPhone or iPad app.
