In an effort to "recreate the serene misty landscape of the Scottish Highlands," boots brand Hunter installed a greenhouse pop-up in New York's Grand Central Terminal. The rainwear pop-up featured the soothing sound of rain, misty air and moss underfoot, altogether creating an immersive environment that transports consumers back to the brand's roots.
The immersive pop-up space gave New Yorkers and others passing through the station the chance to instantly feel transported to a far-off destination, yet still feel protected from the elements. The experience also provided a chance for busy city dwellers to connect with some of the comforting sights, smells and sounds of the natural world and temporarily escape the hustle and bustle of the urban world.
Pop-up installations remain a great way for retailers to stage a low-risk experiment with a physical presence in an unexpected place.
