Dancing stools are the stars of the latest campaign from Ikea.
Ikea has released its new summer retail campaign under the brand platform, ‘The Best Day is the Everyday’, to encourage Australians to visit stores.
Ikea Australia National Marketing Manager Kristin Bengtsson says: “This summer we’re visiting an Australian home where the ‘grandkids’ are playfully enjoying a game of hide and seek; celebrating the everyday happiness to be had at home.”
Directed by Jonny & Will at Blinkink and Finch, the campaign is narrated by acclaimed Swedish actress Lena Endre. It will broadcast across TV and online and will be supported by Ikea owned channels.
The Monkeys creative director Barb Humphries says: “Summer is a time for play, as well as for having afternoon naps. With IKEA, there’s plenty of room for both.”
The Best Day is the Everyday platform was introduced in 2016, featuring inanimate objects come to life - from rugs to pot plants.
The Monkeys have held the creative account for Ikea since 2010.
