Short explanation
This year, IKEA introduced UPPLEVA, a completely new product range that integrates a smart-TV and sound system with furniture; bringing order, beauty and functionality to living rooms all over the world.
Entering a completely new business area is something IKEA doesn’t do very often, making the launch all the more important. The challenge was to present this unique piece of news in a way that would create both global media exposure for the launch, and massive public interest.
The situation demanded it, as the product would at first be available in five European cities only – Stockholm, Paris, Gdansk, Berlin, and Milan – while we anticipated that interest in this product would stretch far beyond these lucky five. IKEA wanted the news to create interest with world-wide media, but also bring their idea directly to consumers. Everywhere at once.
