Stokke®s Scandinavian success story continues with the opening of a second flagship store. Stokke® reached a new milestone in 2016 with the opening of their first ever flagship store in Shanghai, China. Stokke continues their journey into the retail space with the opening of a second flagship store in Seoul, September 29.th 2016. With the appeal of the Scandinavian lifestyle to the Asian consumer, and Stokke®s leading position in the Korean market, the city was the natural choice for the new location.
Every element of the new flagship store has been designed to give the consumer the definitive Norwegian experience and introduce them to the essence of the Stokke® brand. With a premium storefront in Seoul´s most exclusive shopping district, the store is sure to stand out with it´s sleek and sophisticated Scandinavian look. “As the world’s leading premium baby care brand, we are very proud to now open our first own stores in a very premium location”, says Anton Van De Putte, CEO Stokke®.
The store concept is the result of extensive work across internal teams at Stokke® with their creative agency The North Alliance and in-store agency Reactor. The collaboration is based on Stokke®s core values with the brand´s design philosophy being the foremost source of inspiration.
”The store offers a first class brand experience where the products take center stage. The consumer experience is key to Stokke® and we want our flagship stores to be the ultimate brand manifesto offering a superior brand experience and product selection. Combining Scandinavian materials and lifestyle, with leading edge digital solutions Stokke® flagship store will provide a very new experience and closeness to the brand universe.
We wish to elevate our brand and the industry by setting high standards for consumer service and experience in our store”, says Bård Kvamme, Retail Development Director at Stokke.
