The launch of the IKEA Catalogue takes place every year almost as a ritual but this year it has a deeper meaning, linked to the new role that our homes have in our lives and to the brand’s ability to positively support the need for change. Based on these premises, DDB Group Italy developed a strategic and communication platform in which the IKEA Catalogue was turned into a handbook that makes even the impossible seem possible, like adopting sustainable living solutions without great effort and with ease.
During the pre-launch phase we creatively played on a paradox: nobody knows better than animals how to balance sustainability with saving, as they are capable in their daily life of living in a perfectly sustainable way without using too many resources. This is how our digital and social video-strategy, with many “furry” protagonists, was launched.
The launch Campaign instead, which included Print, Billboard, Digital and Radio channels, describes the iconic actions linked to the new products that “talk” about sustainability: from meatballs with vegetable proteins that taste identical to meat, the BILLY bookcase edition produced with wood from the forest damaged by the Vaia storm, to bedroom products made from cotton grown with sustainable methods that fully respect the environment.
