Let’s kick off with a question: If you had a home theatre, would you still go to the theater to watch a movie? Chances are you will wait for the Blu-ray version of it and watch it in the comfort of your home. What if we told you that IKEA has remodeled a movie theater so that you can watch movies in comfortable beds? Yes, beds!
This project was carried out by IKEA as part of the Wake Up Love campaign. IKEA remodeled the movie theatre located in Khimki, Russia. All the conventional seats were replaced with large and comfortable beds along with sheets, pillows, comforters and the trimmings you find on the IKEA show floor. For those who are not interested in lying down while watching a movie, armchairs and coffee tables have been set up as well.
Consumers were totally surprised when they were taken to the theater, completely transformed. However, if you look at it analytically, you would realize that IKEA would need a maintenance crew on duty as well. You wouldn’t want to go lie down in a dirty bed now, would you?
