our approach

We sought to understand the needs, behaviors, and motivations of current luxury car owners with regard to automotive technology and media. We explored multiple design languages, recognizing that there was no one-size-fits-all design solution for Mercedes drivers. We also spent time thinking about the mechanics, benefits, and disadvantages of placing the module in the vehicle glovebox, center console, or sun visor. Ultimately, we settled on the glovebox, which reduces risk of spills and is infrequently accessed, offering drivers a sense of security.
