“Polestar Precept’s aesthetics are rooted in cutting-edge technology rather than historical automotive references,” states Polestar Head of Design Maximilian Missoni when asked about the design of Polestar Precept. “Our goal was to question automotive conventions and traditions and start an entirely new chapter of avant-garde design.”
Precept pulls off a balancing act of being both visionary and realistic, a logical evolution of Polestar’s design language as well as a sizeable leap forward for automotive. Both the interior and the exterior of Precept feature sustainable or recycled materials, which have created new design opportunities due to their unique characteristics.
“As designers we can contribute to the move towards sustainability by getting inspired by these new materials,” Missoni continues. “With Precept, we wanted to show that sustainability and technology can be merged into stunning products.”
Premium with a purpose. That’s how we view the 3D knit material covering the seats of the Precept. Not only does it have a distinctive look and feel befitting a premium vehicle, it’s made from a single strand of yarn. Variations of this material have been seen before, but only in the fashion world. We’ve brought it into automotive. And not just for the look.
