Ikea Japan: Home furnishing liner
From the place to sleep To home to enjoy.
Persuade the Japanese consumers that home furnishing is a great and fun way to improve their life at home and succesfully launch IKEA's first store in Kansai region.
We hi-jacked an entire train both inside and outside, furnished with IKEA extiles, demonstrating that a monotonous daily place can be transformed into a place full of inspiration, with just a piece of textiles. The train is a symbolic line connecting from the centre of Kobe-city to IKEA Portisland store, that represents “From the place to sleep To home to enjoy”.
TV, newspapers, online and other media made the IKEA launch event/store opening a major story, creating extensive WOM. Opening day sales set the world record for all IKEA stores, with nearly 40,000 customers.
