The CampaignIn order to promote the product promise “A new perspective on hotel rooms” of the Vitality Room of Swissôtel, an art installation featuring an optical illusion was constructed at Zurich main station on October 25, 2016, which allowed visitors to quite literally see things from a new perspective.
Creative ExecutionBased on the scientific construction of the Ames room a distorted pop-up-room of 48 square metres was build for only one day. As a result of the optical illusion, a person standing in one corner appears to the observer to be a giant, while a person standing in the other corner appears to be a dwarf. In two months work, the room was accurately planned, crafted and designed with original furnishings from the Swiss design company Vitra.

What will the hotel room of the future look like? Swissôtel and Wallpaper* magazine have built it. The Vitality Room is based on a holistic room concept that is fully adapted to the needs of the hotel guest, complete with cyber trainer, circadian light, air purifier, aromatherapy and light therapy, and offering the maximum possible relaxation in the smallest possible space.
Ice Skaters shows the dreamy and slightly surreal spectacle of a middle aged couple spinning and gliding on the polished wood floors of an elegant, high-ceilinged apartment in their socks. With the tagline 'Bring life into your living room' it is a beautifully crafted advert creating a warm, nostalgic mood for the brand, Ikea. It won Bronze at Eurobest in 2018 for production company CZAR Brussels. Director, Joe Vanhoutteghem and producer, Lander Engels talk to Eurobest about the experience of creating the work.
The team at Marvelous Moscow have the answer. CCO, Artem Sinyavskiy shares the story of how their work for Skylink, 'The 1 MB Campaign', went on to win Bronze at Eurobest in 2017, despite the media budget being pulled a week before the launch of the campaign.
PS21 Madrid, the creative transformation company set up by founder of creative agency dommo Agustín Vivancos, was in its first year when the team began work on Searching for the Special Colour of Seville. It was a piece of work that would not only go on to win the agency’s first major award, Bronze in Creative Data at Eurobest in 2018, but would also become part of Seville’s cultural heritage. We hear how the idea came to life from Strategy Director, Sergio Garcia and Executive Creative Director, Victor Blanco.
