The Samsung Frame TV has a magical duality. It’s a 4K TV designed to double as an art frame, that can display beautiful works of art.
In Europe though, the TV category is super generic. It’s all about comparing tech specifications so the only difference people see is price.
We needed to move Samsung from being seen as a manufacturing business to a culturally relevant brand that inspires curiosity.
• Drive earned attention through cultural, engaging, authentic, newsworthy stories that genuinely link to the product
• PR: help reach a more consumer-centric, less technical audience, e.g. broader lifestyle media
• Appeal to a younger (Gen Z) audience to stand out from competitors, driving brand differentiation
• Multi-market to resonate across multiple European countries
How could we highlight this incredible feature in a way that would be surprising or inspiring enough to earn real attention?
We discovered that there is more art missing around the world than there is showing in all of the world’s museums combined. The Samsung Frame TV doubles as an art frame.
What if the TV designed to bring art into our homes could help bring lost art back to the world?
We created ‘Missing Masterpieces’; the world’s first art exhibition for finding lost art.
Together with a world leading art crime historian, we exhibited a collection of 12 digitized iconic lost artworks on Samsung Frame TVs in homes and online, in over 30+ European countries.
Then we invited the world to help in the search to find these lost treasures.
The campaign would capture imaginations all across Europe and to showcase the Samsung Frame TV’s key differentiating feature, while inviting a more meaningful role in people’s lives.
