Westwing is Europe’s No.1 in Beautiful Living e-Commerce and a true one-stop-shop for Design Lovers. It is offering a unique brand experience with a curated assortment of its own Westwing Collection and the best design brands – also available in their first physical store at Jungfernstieg in Hamburg. To round up the beautiful shopping experience, we provided a custom in-store soundtrack alongside innovative wireless speaker technology.
To ensure a holistic and multi-sensory shopping experience, HearDis! was commissioned to create an in-store music concept that fits the brand, as well as the new location, while at the same time speaking to the different target groups.
The overall music selection, ranging from relaxed to energizing pop songs, creates an atmosphere of well-being, comfort and happiness with a very positive and friendly mood In busier times of the day with more people on the floors, the music becomes more inspiring and surprising resulting in a slightly more modern and trendsetting atmosphere. Furthermore, the wide spectrum of products, materials and colors can also be heard through high quality music from various decades, styles and genres.
Innovative Audio Technology
To complete the fresh and sophisticated customer experience, HearDis! has installed a state-of-the-art audio system from Newtec. Its wireless active loudspeakers can each be adjusted to the customer's journey through the store, providing an excellent, full-bodied sound experience. Utilizing standard lighting tracks, the system is not only sustainable and efficient to install, but also flexible to adapt to different floor layouts. Naturally, our audio concept considers the different areas within the store, creating a sound environment that is always present but never overpowering.
