Papaiz: House

The brief: To create a piece for a Papaiz showroom aimed at the trade public that calls resellers’ attention to the reliability and strength of Papaiz brand padlocks.

Solution: An interactive display that challenges people to break into a house. As they follow the instructions and fold the paper taken from the display, they go in through the gate, through a window in the house, through a bedroom door, into a closet and into a drawer, until they come to a little box with a Papaiz padlock. From there, no matter how much they exert themselves, they cannot go any farther because it is impossible to fold the paper more. It’s impossible to get past the padlock. At that point, the brand’s concept makes sense: “Papaiz. Your world well protected.”

Results: The piece was used up quickly. It exceeded sales targets by 35% and was extended to various points of sale, helping consolidate Papaiz as leader in the padlock segment in Brazil.

Really nice work. A really simple thing, low cost to produce. Inteligent. Maybe we will see it in Cannes. Is it Promo?
