for a sizzling fast new york city travel guide, look no further than the ace hotel x superfuture new york field guide running on googles new chromebook. ace and google have teamed up to put the chromebook in the hands of ace guests and lobby visitors till the end of september, and superfuture were brought onboard to produce the short, sharp, and highly filtered content and maps.
superfuture met the ace team over a decade ago and since then we've collaborated on old skool projects including print superguides for both portland and new york. for this field guide we branched out and created some new categories and did intense reconnaissance of the midtown south area where ace is located. we also edited a tight selection of the best music, film, and art events coming up this summer to compliment hundreds of establishment listings. add to that some high tech from google developers and the result is a very contextual mix of content powered by new technology.
it's a snappy interface and while crunching map data is usually processor intensive, the chromebook cuts through this as if it were havarti cheese. in no time ace guests will be working their way from soho to williamsburg then back to the west village – before they're even out of bed.
housed in a chic felt slipcover, the light-weight chromebook features an 8-hour battery life and instant-browsing. chromebooks boot in eight seconds and resume instantly while your information is stored safely in the cloud.
as if that's not enough, guests get an ace x google designed notebook - with real paper - wearing a john milton quote from 1634. according to ace "this is about discovery, documentation, adventure and resourcefulness - we aim to make the ace nyc experience as inspiring and nuanced as our guests"... and we couldn't agree more.
