Polestar Design Contest: a recap and a teaser

They came with cars. They came with boats. They came with zeppelins. They came with satellites. Some came without vehicles at all. From various countries and walks of life, they all came to participate in the 2020 Polestar Design Contest.

And the submissions exceeded every expectation, both in terms of creativity and quality. The impact was felt further abroad than we anticipated. And the winners were incredibly hard to determine, though the ones who took home the titles definitely deserved them.

In other words, the 2020 Polestar Design Contest was a success by any measure. We were amazed by what we saw.

And we can’t wait to see what the 2021 Polestar Design Contest will be like.

Milan is the centre of the design universe (again)

With machine learning exhibitions, anti-smartphone throwbacks, and a giant brutalist orange lavatory, Milan Design Week is always one of the most sought-after tickets on the cultural calendar. Designs first seen on these well-trodden streets inevitably filter down into your homes, wardrobes, and, yes, even cars. As any good creative will tell you, if you want to see what’s coming next in the world of design, you must first start in Milan. We join Nargess Banks for this year’s must-see attractions at Salone del Mobile and Fuorisalone.
