Polestar has officially opened its new headquarters in Gothenburg, Sweden, which sits on the Volvo Car Group campus. The new building with its ‘Polestar Cube’, was designed by Swedish architecture firm Bornstein Lyckefors.
“Minimalistic, avant-garde design is at the core of the Polestar brand, in our cars and in the way that we interact with our customers. Design also plays a role in how we feel and cooperate in our workplace,” says Thomas Ingenlath. “With the new headquarters, we wanted to transform an existing structure to create a new, modern building on the Volvo Cars campus that expresses our brand values and which becomes an inspiring and desirable place for our global team to work.”
Polestar is still gearing up to kick off production of its first model, the Polestar 1, which will be built in China. “In China, another architectural expression is soon to be completed as we finalize the construction of the Polestar Production Centre in Chengdu. In just one year, we have already established Polestar as a global brand with a global footprint,” concludes Thomas Ingenlath.
Earlier this month Polestar announced that production of Polestar 1 prototypes had kicked off in Sweden. Polestar is planning to build 34 Polestar 1 prototypes that will be used for crash testing, weather tests and other endurance tests.
