The HTC Design Tour Is Taking On The World… One City At A Time…
What happens when you mix a bevy of international journalists from all walks of life with the most innovative designers in New York City? The HTC Design Tour 2013. Already a staple in such cities as Hong Kong and Milan and now HTC has combined the unique experience of Art & Design and paired it with the technology of the HTC One.
HTC, a leader in mobile innovation and design, announced New York as the latest city to join their series of Global Design Tours, a free Android app available on Google Play. The HTC Global Design application offers recommendations on design hotspots around the world and was developed in collaboration with Wallpaper* magazine. The New York content on the app was created to celebrate the 25th annual International Contemporary Furniture Festival (ICFF), North America’s platform for global design, and explores favorite pop-up exhibitors that were shown at the fair last month.
The New York locations featured on the app were selected by Wallpaper’s New York editor Pei-Ru Keh, One & Co (HTC) Principal Irinia Kozlovskaya and British-born/New York-based fashion designer Andrew Wren. The locations offer uncommon experiences at the city’s most unusual design locations – from building your own cookie at Peels to seeing “the city that never sleeps” from a new vantage point at Four Freedom Park.
To create a multi-sensory experience, location information on the app is complemented by specially selected music tracks. Music helps remind you of a time and place, so this is a great way to be reminded of these special destinations every time one of these songs is heard. Check out more on our experiences throughout NYC at Mociun (Brooklyn), American Design Club, Wanted Design and for more information about the HTC One and HTC One coming to Verizon.
Thanks HTC for inviting me for an exciting time throughout NYC!!
