Polestar # : Kang Sik Park
As ‘ Connectivity ‘ became a basic necessity from the development of Sharing system and Autonomous driving, we had to redefine the future of ‘ Connectivity ‘. Though we still have been in contact with each other on the Internet under COVID-19, online relationship is insufficient for building a deeper connection with one another. At the same time, Concern for the climate emergency continue to arise, what we need to do before we find solutions, we have to know nature more by getting close to it. Thus, Kang Sik suggests Polestar # “Pair – Sona“, which will help people to develop a mutual connection with other people and nature to solve these problems mentioned above.
Polestar # is designed to provide a place for ’ Pair -Sona ‘ experience, passengers can enjoy the stronger bonding experience while they are on Polestar #. Therefore, the redefined Connectivity ‘ Pair – Sona ‘ and Polestar # designed for these purposes would contribute to ‘ Progress ‘ in our Lifestyle.
Polestar #’s Exterior design symbolizes space formed by the human – nature / human – human connection to capture its unique pureness. Dominant elements were dropped to express pure and clean design and sections of the surfaces are connected to represent connectivity.
In addition to the pure surfaces, progressive details such as GPS and Face identification system were incorporated to manifest the design balance seen in Precept.
Polestar # Interior follows concept “Pair – Sona”, which enables passengers to have strong bond between others and nature around. Movable seats paired with other passengers and Ambient lights which surround interior are designed to achieve Pair – Sona visually.
Furthermore, Polestar # provides two types of Interior design (#Pure , #Warm) for various experiences based on passengers’ choice. So, Passengers can appreciate the Pair – Sona experience whilst feeling the harmony between futuristic details & pure interior design.
