Rong Guan is responsible for the design of the Polestar Retail Spaces, one of the most important physical manifestations of the Polestar brand.
What’s the best part of your job?
The best part of my job is that I don’t only work with other architects. I get to work with colleagues from totally different fields with different expertise.
What’s one thing you’ve done here at Polestar that you’re immensely proud of?
Actually, it’s being part of the automotive industry, which isn’t an industry that I initially thought I’d be in. I’m also very proud to play a part in creating a new brand from the beginning, both the concept and the design.
What job would you like to have, if you didn’t have this one?
I’d want the same job, but in a different industry. Fashion.
If you had a superpower, what would it be?
My superpower would be the ability to do ctrl-Z in real life.
Would you rather be able to control animals with your mind, or electronics with your mind?
I’m a “more is more” person, so I’m going to say both!
Global Fashion Summit: alliances for a new era
Fashion is many things. Bold, experimental, and highly influential, to name a few. It’s a place of innovation and boundary-pushing. Which is exactly what the world needs right now. That’s why we are the main partner of this year’s Global Fashion Summit: Copenhagen Edition.
Art for a sustainable age
Sustainability. A term that has shaken off any buzzword-like connotations to become a rallying cry for the modern era. It categorizes a movement that is still taking shape, one that's seen as the answer to the unfolding situation that is the climate crisis. Industries, individuals, and initiatives are defined by how sustainable they are, from art to automotive. Especially when they come together.
