Re:Move, a project that spans industries and time zones, is a true collaboration. Free from hierarchy, each participant has equal input, able to share their insights and opinions when it comes to creating this sustainable, lightweight, electric trike. Fresh perspectives and unorthodox solutions are the order of the day. No-one sits at the head of this table.
The remote nature of said table doesn’t make it any less round. The partners of Re:Move (CAKE, Hydro, Konstantin Grcic, Wallpaper*, and Polestar), regularly meet for online roundtable discussions regarding the challenges, updates, changes, and breakthroughs that are a regular feature of Re:Move.
See one of those roundtables, captured on film for Re:Move’s public debut at South by Southwest 2021, above.
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.
The Hydro chair: a glimpse into the future
Many have tried to imagine what the future might look like. Flying cars, holograms, and interstellar travel have all been considered. And a lot of silver and grey, for some reason. When we try to envision a sustainable future, though, it tends to look a bit different. Greener. Now, that vision has been realised in the shape of the chair. One that’s both silver and green.
The importance of impatience: Polestar 2 sustainability upgrades
Patience. A famously good thing. There is no end to the folksy phrases and nuggets of wisdom that emphasise the importance of being good at waiting. Patience, it’s said, is a virtue. But when it comes to righting environmental wrongs, it’s also a luxury. One we don’t have. Which is the reasoning behind the Polestar 2 sustainability upgrades.
