IKEA Croydon | Environment
The objective of their visit was for each student to get ideas and inspiration to design their own self-assembly lamp for their final GCSE coursework project. The group wanted also to gain understanding of the market IKEA is selling to, the packaging and transportation implications of products arriving and leaving the store and the range and quality of different lighting products we sell.
In essence students wanted to get a ‘real world’ experience, as their own product should look as professional as possible. Based on the knowledge gained from the school visit they will also have to design self-assembly instructions, using no text. The visit in Croydon store was organized by Marketing, Sales and Commin functions to make it as interesting for visitors as possible.
The students have learned about IKEA Croydon local customers, had a store tour focusing on different lighting solutions and had a chance to build a few lamps themselves. We hope their visit to the store will help them in their project!
