Acura and Studio Dror have collaborated to design a limited-edition desk inspired by the luxury automaker's role in "Thor," the new Marvel film starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins.
S.H.I.E.L.D., the intelligence and security organization of Marvel Universe featured in the film's storyline, has its agents behind the wheels of Acura TL, MDX, ZDX and RL models throughout the film. With the storyline in mind, Dror interpreted an agent's work environment into a stylized and functional desk appropriate for this venerated universe.
"It was fun to project myself as a S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent and to shift the approach when designing this desk for Acura, as if I was going to be user 001," Dror said. "It's a stimulating part of the design process."
Excited by Acura's attention to detail and precise manufacturing, the design of the desk combines elegance, sharpness, secrecy, advanced technology and efficiency - all elements Dror identified as akin to the spirit of his work and that of Acura.
