Ikea gets disability

In an important step for the retailer, some of its best-selling products including the Billy Bookcase and Karlstad Sofa now include optional add-ons that make them easier to use if you have a disability.

Ikea Israel has teamed up with two disability charities, Milbat and Access Israel, on its latest initiative, a series of add-ons to make its products more user-friendly for disabled people.

ThisAbles is based on research carried out by the charities and the retailer, which looked at what people with disabilities need in their home environments.

Ikea has developed 12 different hacks for some of its most popular products, such as a ‘glass bumper’ which stops wheelchairs from knocking into the glass on its Billy Bookcase, or a ‘mega switch’ which slides over the base of a Ranarp Lamp, making it easier to turn on and off.

Customers can download and 3D print any of the add-ons from the ThisAbles site, as shown in the campaign’s demo video by McCann Tel Aviv.


Never work with children or animals?

The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland have two main sites: Edinburgh Zoo and the Highland Wildlife Park. Very different visitor experiences. 

RZSS provide visitors with fun, captivating and memorable experiences through active interpretation and personal engagement wrapped up in a sense of play. Inspired by the animals that they see and the conversations these provoke their aim is for young visitors to take that ‘empathy to action’ journey on their own terms, using mechanisms that appeal specifically to them.

To help meet this aim the RZSS. Tandem have developed a family-focused interpretation toolkit to use across a range of platforms: an activity-based learning journey guide, on-site interpretation, digital interactives, wayfinding, marketing initiatives and merchandise. This scheme has been designed to help the RZSS connect better with younger visitors and their families. 

Central to the toolkit are two friends: Ruby & Zed. A creature from another Zooniverse and a girl from just down the road. Imbued with interpretive power, our two characters take young visitors on a secret mission full of challenges around the Zoo or Wildlife Park.RZSS8.jpg

European campaign

Featuring real-life labours and births, the European Parliament’s Choose Your Future film plays on our hopes and fears to encourage us to vote.

The subject matter is perhaps particularly pertinent for people in the UK, and doubtless the European Parliament had Brexit in mind when creating the campaign. According to them, a recent survey revealed that 80% of people believe that what unites Europeans is more important than what separates them. It also showed that many have worries or doubt regarding the future of Europe.

“The biggest act of hope and will to believe in a better future is putting a child into this world,” says Johan Køhler, Partner and Copywriter at & Co. “And this is not a political campaign. It’s not about who and what to vote for. It’s about why we vote and, in my mind, we vote because we have to deal with the challenges we face globally, unless we want to leave the coming generations worse off.”
