Polestar 2 themes: an introduction
There can be too much of a good thing. Too many choices lead to confusion. How many people can make an informed decision when attempting to pick from a seemingly endless array of options?
So, we kept it simple. The material and colour palettes of the Polestar 2 are carefully curated, an intentionally small range of options which all work together.
Some of our designers, following their wandering muse to different cities around the globe, have made their own configurations. We’re calling them themes, and each theme is named for the city by which it was inspired.
And just as each of those cities has their own distinct personality, each theme puts a different aspect of the Polestar 2 in focus. The high contrast of the Shanghai. The timeless modernity of the London. The unflinching consistency of the Berlin.
These themes show that different configurations all work. There are no bad combinations. Just the right amount of a good thing.
Polestar at the Met Gala
Few things occupy the space where design, art, and innovation meet as naturally as fashion. The runway is a known environment for true experimentation, showcasing new techniques, materials, and design philosophies to audiences eager to see what’s next and what’s still in the realm of fantasy. The Met Gala, colloquially known as “fashion’s big night out”, is where the who’s who of this world congregate. And to meet up at this meeting of minds, participants took another thing that’s perfectly at home in the middle of the Venn diagram of design, art, and innovation: Polestar 2.
2's Day with Polestar 2
2's Day. Tuesday, February 22nd, 2022. Or, more satisfyingly: 22/02/22. Given that it will take another 200 years for the next occurrence of this type (and it looks like February 22nd, 2222, will actually fall on a Friday), we figured there was no better time to look at our own number 2.
No compromises: Polestar at the Big Game
Agreeing is easy. Challenging the status quo, however, is not. Driving progress means questioning conventions, old ways, and established methods. Saying no, in other words. No to time wasting, no to smoke screens, and no to shortcuts. So when it comes to following the industry standard, it's a no from us.
