New HTC Design App Offers Fresh Look at Big Apple

HTC Global Design ToursThe HTC Global Design Tours, a free Android app available on Google Play, has just added New York as the latest city to join the series.

The HTC Global Design application gives you an insider view of events, shows and installations from the world’s top design destinations. It also 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 being shown at the fair next week.

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.

The Wallpaper* HTC Global Design Tours is available to download for free from the Google Play store (https://play.google.com/store).
