What we need
The participants should concentrate on the study of a design for an illy-branded floor display that allows for exhibiting and giving maximum value to the product .
The installation shall display the 250g illy cans that will sell in combo with a biscuits pack, expressly researched for the initiative. Furthermore, the display shall be matched by a mountable booth to employ for possible tasting sessions .

In particular, for the correct development of the proposals, creatives are invited to consider the following guidelines.

Research an appealing display that may draw the customers attention and push to purchase. The installation should be conceived so as to allow illy to communicate the idea behind “Making The Ordinary Extraordinary, Beautifully” that the customers will fulfil when tasting the illy coffee. In fact, aware of the excellence of its own product, illy wants to be the only coffee elected by those customers who want to concede themselves a daily pleasure, or a pleasant moment to live and share in the weekends but also a well-deserved and satisfying breakfast.

Brand target
The end consumers of the illy coffee belong to the 30-55 years age-range and include coffee lovers and connoisseurs .

Display characteristics
Size : the suggested size for the display is 510mm (width) x 630mm (depth) x 1500mm (height). It shall host 48 packages measuring 250mm (width) x 100mm (depth) x 220mm (height). Each package shall host a 250g illy coffee can (overall weight of coffee + can equals 400g) and a 300g biscuits pack.
Consider the use of one or more shelves to distribute the weight of all packages over the whole structure.
Furthermore, the display shall also have some niches to host informative leaflets and/or some useful spaces for additional communication material of the product.
Production techniques : the display will be made in cardboard and sent to the point of sales already assembled. The display should be assembled by means of folding and/or joints (for cost reasons, avoid gluing techniques).
Note well : the display should be conceived so as to make the product easily reachable by the consumer; for this reason it is advisable to set the topmost shelf at a maximum height of 1200mm, and the lowest shelf at 300mm from the ground.
Besides, to better ease the reach of the product, include some empty space between the package and the upper shelf.
It is important that the design gives maximum light and visibility to the packages. The employment of lights is allowed but discouraged, for cost reasons.
