Polestar has launched its 2021 global design contest geared to inspire and promote automotive creativity. The contest sets out to find the most creative, design-led ideas that drive electric mobility into a more socially progressive and sustainable future - that does not need to be a car.
The contest features both student and professional categories, with initial designs submitted in the form of sketches or digital images. Designs should display new ways of thinking that could encourage positive change in society, including responses to the ongoing climate crisis. The progressive theme should be evident in the designs.
"In a landscape of disruptive technologies, evolving lifestyles and fast-growing concern for climate change, design can be the driving force for positive change," commented Maximilian Missoni, Head of Design at Polestar. "We believe our Contest provides a great platform for the design community to visualise progressive mobility ideas of the future."
An exclusive feature of the global Polestar Design Contest is the coaching and support it offers. Shortlisted submissions will receive guidance and feedback from Maximilian Missoni, Polestar designers and sustainability lead. The winning designs in each category will be brought to life as 1:5 scale models and an exhibition of the winning designs will then tour Polestar Spaces around the world.
The deadline for submissions is June 30, 2021.
