Bigger Storage Ideas

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Direct / Ambient / 2009

The idea was to play with the widely recognisable shapes and designs of the IKEA storage range and to put them into a new and surprising context. By redesigning the front of a whole apartment building in one of the busiest streets in Frankfurt with giant-size mock-ups of IKEA drawers and cardboard boxes, we made two points: gaining the highest level of attention; and literally linking the product to where it belongs, in small flats and apartments.
