IKEA "Our Little World"

Ad Agency
Video advertising:

IKEA has always recognised the value of a wonderful, practical home because our homes are our own little universes. To support people return to inventing positive changes for the planet every day, IKEA attempted to show consumers the potential of these tiny, easy actions taken at home.

The spot 'Our Little World' was directed by renowned Canadian director, Mark Zibert.

Johanna Andrén, head of marketing - IKEA Canada, said: "Through this latest spot, we wanted to show that sustainability and positive change is still possible with small actions taken at home, while acknowledging the shared experiences and challenges of the last year, and really celebrating the way communities have come together to face them".

Dhaval Bhatt, partner and creative director at Rethink, said: "It was important to us to make sure the actions happening in each little world were honest and grounded in reality because the visual creative device of the little worlds is so spectacular, both to help the spot resonate and also to make the sustainable lifestyles feel accessible".

Joel Holtby, partner, head of art and creative director at Rethink, said "From previous collaborations, we knew Mark could balance the heavy technical requirements while still capturing the emotion, performance and narrative a spot like this demanded. Zibert brought both a strong creative vision and exceptional technical preparation to the project that made a complicated shoot really smooth and, along with the amazing team at A52, made the final outcome better than we could have imagined.".
