IKEA transforms monorail into playground

2014 at 01:49 pm by admin


Tokyo train passengers are in for a treat, as IKEA has turned an entire monorail into a fun interactive showroom! With “Party Train” written across the side of the Tama Monorail Line, this is the latest move by IKEA to help celebrate the new opening of their store near Tokyo’s Tachikawa station.


Once inside, travelers are greeted to a flurry of colors and designs, and were able to sit down and relax with a variety of snacks and games. IKEA employees were aboard the train as well, and played with travelers as well as hosted quizzes and prize giveaways. The train was available for two days earlier this week, making it a limited edition hotspot for fans and passengers alike!


IKEA is a Swedish company, founded in 1943 by Ingvar Kamprad, that designs and sells ready-to-assemble furniture, appliances, and home accessories. IKEA is known for its modern architectural designs and eco-friendly interior design work. Founded by Ingvar Kamprad when he was only 17 years old, the company is now one of the largest furniture retailers in the world, with a nearly $40 billion revenue in 2013. IKEA has since become an international name, and has nearly 350 stores across 43 different countries.
