Susanne has a hand in everything aesthetic, shaping the look, feel, and overall visual expression of the brand.
What’s the best part of your job?
Being part of a team that strives to make everything a little better, never settling. And we laugh a lot.
What’s something you’ve done here at Polestar that you’re immensely proud of?
I’m proud of everything I do here in the spirit of a brand that just keeps pushing boundaries.
What job would you like to have, if you didn’t have this one?
Hmmm, a vet.
If you had a superpower, what would it be?
Tough one, you could debate this forever... if I said “flying” that would be too obvious. But maybe the ability to speak every language in the world and therefore be able to travel anywhere and communicate with everyone I meet, on their terms.
Would you rather have to read aloud every time you read, or sing everything you say?
I spend way too much time considering these things, but seeing as I enjoy singing I’d have to choose that one. I look forward to being the most annoying person in the world.
Art for a sustainable age
Sustainability. A term that has shaken off any buzzword-like connotations to become a rallying cry for the modern era. It categorizes a movement that is still taking shape, one that's seen as the answer to the unfolding situation that is the climate crisis. Industries, individuals, and initiatives are defined by how sustainable they are, from art to automotive. Especially when they come together.

Art communicates. It resonates with us all in a way that few of us can fully articulate. The medium doesn't matter either. Whether sculpture or song, acrylics or alabaster, art provokes a reaction. As such, it's an incredibly powerful way to deliver a message, directly accessing the audience's emotions and creating a connection. Which is exactly why Thijs Biersteker does what he does.
