BBH Singapore has unveiled a new shopping format for Samsung called ‘shoppable worlds’ which features Samsung home appliances including the brand’s Bespoke line and lifestyle TVs.
“It has been developed to recognize that social commerce does not have to be led by a push-to-buy approach,” Samsung said. “Instead, the audience can enjoy the journey from the first time it sees a product to the moment of purchase.”
The format creates immersive worlds that draw the audience, followed by an experience that replicates a successful ‘department store’ approach, the brand added.
“E-commerce is typically approached and viewed as purely transactional. But that’s not how people behave online.,” said Sascha Kuntze, Chief Creative Officer at BBH Singapore. “People no longer ‘go shopping’; they are always shopping.”
The first series features room sets created by designers and miniature model makers Ruchika Nambiar, Robb & Jess of Jessica Cloe Miniatures, Briar Nielsen, Hannah Lemon, and Anna Wright. The rooms feature trending styles, from dark academia to grand-millennial to maximalism, to showcase how Samsung products can not only integrate but inspire home designs.
The concept of miniature homes was developed by BBH Singapore for its strong resonance with design-lovers and home decorators. It speaks to craft appreciation and showcases how in interior styling, the little details matter.
Debuting in Indonesia and Thailand today and extending into Singapore in the coming weeks, the campaign will launch on Instagram, augmented by a number of firsthand design diaries from the makers behind the roomsets.
It marks the first use of this new format which the agency developed to deliver more engaging e-commerce through social media.
The team at BBH Singapore carefully planned how the content takes shoppers on a journey from initial inspiration through to action. The Samsung creative mimics the allure of a shop window through miniature room set designs, through to a showroom experience. Lastly, it replicates a smart and friendly shop assistant in selecting a final product tailored to each user as the content evolves.
“This creative seeks to turn scrollers into shoppers, drawing people into the charming worlds of these model homes, filled with craft and interior design flair,” said Olivier Bockenmeyer, Head of Corporate Marketing, Southeast Asia and Oceania at Samsung Electronics.
“Using the twin insights of how people are really using social media and their passion for interior decor, BBH Singapore has shown users how our products can fit into their own lifestyles.”
