Dart develops IFA appearance for AEG/ ElectroluxNeuss, )
The trade fair guests immerse into the AEG product worlds “Taste” and “Care” and are taken on an experiential tour to selected highlights of the parent company Electrolux. The new visual identity of the traditional brand AEG, which was presented last year, is being intensively expanded. Dark, warm colours and dramatic lighting draw the attention to the hero products, realistic presentations with a deliberately reduced number of exhibits encourage the visitors to interact.
Synchronously animated LED panels with brand and ambient content lead with their funnel-shaped arrangement from the entrance area further into the interior of the fair design. In the front area “Taste”, the AEG product line “Mastery Range” is brought to life by live cooking. At additional stations such as “Chill” or “Heat”, the combination of appliances and real ingredients inspires the visitors to mix a smoothie from fruits or to compare different types of stoves. The effect of upward sliding dishwasher baskets is illustrated by the Paternoster principle. At the same time, integrated screens on the Hero walls together with a social media station ensure a lively, communicative atmosphere.
The center of the “Care” area is the AEG Care Label Project under the motto “Don’t overwash”. A u-shaped studio table with implemented quotes from emerging designers, drawings and fabric samples visualizes the workplace of fashion designers and serves as the basis for interviews, panel discussions and workshops with visitors. The strengths of the AEG laundry care technologies such as bleaching or enema protection can be tracked live at the surrounding Proof Points: Visitors see clothing optically reproduced by mirror effects or can simulate rain on water-repellent fibers. The new AEG app, which analyzes the stains, recommends suitable treatment and starts the appropriate washing programme, is also interactive. And a modern and elegant living room with different surfaces and furniture heights invites visitors to test robotic vacuum cleaners or window cleaners.
In the adjacent area, Electrolux is presenting itself in its own brand space as a strong parent company with high technological standards. With “Make Life Delicious”, the direct counterbalancing of a professional and a consumer kitchen by Electrolux enables comparative cooking events with a combined tasting of both sides on a long table decorated with fresh vegetables. “Wear your Wardrobe” offers with the look of a boutique and elements of a walk-in wardrobe tips for the care of favourite items.
With the 2,850 m² appearance of AEG/ Electrolux at the IFA 2017, Dart is staging the premium technologies even more focused and dramatically than in the previous year. The weighting of digital and social networking has been significantly intensified – with this, Dart achieves a genuine evolution of the brand space.
