“A design and creativity festival, curated for the hungry.” That's how Us By Night, a three-night long event held in Antwerp every September, describes itself.
From September 26th to 28th, designers and creatives of every stripe descend upon Antwerp's Waagnatie neighbourhood to inspire and be inspired. A night market offering "honest foods and drinks" (their words) is a running feature, along with a tattoo booth, XXL screens and projectors in every direction, and "colours and movements done just right" (again, their words). Creative directors, set designers, sneaker collagists, and purveyors of positivity are but some of the speakers presenting over these three days.
And one of those speakers was Polestar's own Pär Heyden, there to talk design, communication, and challenging norms.
The Overview Effect: a cognitive shift in awareness reported by some astronauts during spaceflight, often while viewing the Earth from outer space. Those who have experienced it describe a new understanding of the uniqueness, fragility, and relative smallness of our one and only home. And while it’s easy to imagine the impact this must have; it seems that spaceflight is a prerequisite. Which is why we sat down with Karen Nyberg.
Polestar has never gone it alone. We’ve had plenty of collaborators, kindred spirits, and fellow EV enthusiasts with us on our journey towards sustainable electric mobility. And now, in Gores Guggenheim Inc., we have a new partner. One with whom we intend to go public, pursuant to a business combination agreement which we have signed.
