About the design

The nature of how people live and move about the world is changing. People frequently change where they live and work. There has been an increase of cultural events that has created a need for pop-up structures and occasional accommodation. There is also increasing demand for temporary structures for humanitarian emergencies.  

 

This itinerant lifestyle is central to the idea behind Polestar Duo by designer Marcelo Aguiar. It combines lightweight modular design, and drone technology, to realise a new type of compact movable capsule that can work as a small home for two, or for many other temporary purposes. 

 

Duo elegantly shows the potential for a new type of design that combines building and vehicle to respond to and enable societal change.
