Ambient Execution Description
The King of Prussia, PA L.L.Bean retail store is among the first to be completely inside an actual mall, so we wanted to figure out a way to still relay the full L.L.Bean experience. We arrived on the notion of “Outdoor adventure, now inside the mall.” And went from there. The King of Prussia mall itself had a huge concourse with a fountain in the middle, so we decided to turn that into a full-fledged pond, complete with fishing rods on the second level, using a large floor decal and real L.L.Bean gear. To make sure shoppers knew where the new store was located, we used an additional floor decal to make the way with a stream from a main entrance. And finally, to play on the experience of entering a tent, we took over the elevator doors. We wanted to bring the outdoors in, and we did just that.
