Phunk Limited Edition HTC One (M8) puts bespoke art in your pocket

Good luck getting hold of one though - a mere 64 have been made

HTC has teamed up with Singapore art collective Phunk Studio to design a limited-edition version of the One (M8).

The teams worked together to design the smartphone’s revised exterior, with the primary theme of “Wonderment” driving the result. You can catch a glimpse at the creative process of the two parties in the video below.

Phunk’s involvement comes in advance of an exhibition that will stop in Hong Kong, Japan, and Singapore, and is taking place during the studio’s 20th year of existence. The group has previously worked with such corporate heavy-hitters as Nike and Levi’s.

According to HTC, the device signals the beginning of its “Here’s to Creativity” campaign for 2014, following last year’s One Mini variant from fashion designer David Koma. Perhaps we’ll see even more slick, nearly-impossible-to-get designs before the year’s through.
