The Salone Internazionale del Mobile di Milano, also known as Milan Design Week, is the greatest design summit in the world: a meeting of minds in which the most forward-thinking and audacious designs are showcased. A natural place for a progressive brand to be.
And progression is a key ingredient in the Polestar philosophy. It’s one of the three pillars upon which Polestar stands. It’s the force that drives us, that sends us down new paths, always experimenting, never resting. We keep one eye pointed inwards, relentlessly self-improving. We cast the other beyond the boundaries of our industry, seeking out collaborators and kindred spirits with whom we can explore new areas, try new approaches and implement new ideas.
In May of 2021, Sydney’s Paramount House Hotel was the site of an unlikely assembly: a robotics engineer-turned-experimental musician, a surfboard shaper, an indigenous culture advocate, an electric performance car brand, and a host of other artists, creatives, and brands.
It’s the goal of every carmaker to get people in their cars. There are a seemingly endless number of catchphrases, taglines and mottos in the world of automotive, stretching from the cliché to the incomprehensible. But if one reads between the lines, the message is clear: this car is good. Get in it.
There are few places where thought and action come together more effectively than a hackathon. Short and intense by design, hackathons are events in which groups of developers, UX/UI designers, and others collaborate on projects, troubleshooting and ideating in real time, coming up with concepts and doing their best to realise them.
