#2 Prize of €500

I am so happy for this prize, thank you very much. Working Ikea is for
itself a great creative challenge but working for this client in a project
that is based on the reuse of objects was really important and has such a
meaning to me. It's about people behavior and changing some habbits that
can turn the world a better place to live. Thank you for giving me the
chance to do it.

A very warm idea, perfectly matching what people feel that is important in today's society. 
Probably not very new or unique, since IKEA already uses storytelling in their communications, BUT this is about personal human stories which makes it even more attractive. It helps IKEA to move away from the image of standardized, impersonal furniture. Many thanks for your great contribution!
