Nestlé KitKat Chocolatory, São Paulo FITCH, New York City
Nestlé KitKat Chocolatory offers an omnichannel experience, produced through a seamless execution of a PHD (Physical, Human and Digital) strategy with the brand as host as well as merchant in this 1,108-sq.-ft. flagship space. Drawing on the spirit of KitKat’s iconic “Have a Break” strapline, the FITCH design team developed experience design around #createyourbreak – and how this could come to life through theater, innovation, and community. The target audience inspired the design to transcend the physical and offer moments of play through a ream of different digital touchpoints, also designed and developed by FITCH. “The Break Society Café” integrates the KitKat experience with Brazil’s coffee culture.
This project received an INNOVATION AWARD for DIGITAL INTEGRATION
The signature Pick ‘n’ Mix tube positioned at the heart of the store not only wows shoppers as they arrive and acts as a rich backdrop for selfies and pictures, it also has a surprise Chocolatory Virtual Reality break experience inside. Shoppers can take a journey through outer space and explore the KitKat factory as well as the 18 different flavors. Snapchat Augmented Reality filter games pepper the store and a KitKat vending machine game encourages shoppers to get competitive and win prizes.
