ELVIS has unveiled its first campaign for Heal's since being appointed the furniture and homewares retailer's lead creative agency last year.

‘Not all things are created equal’ launches Heal's Spring-Summer 2020 collection and showcases its belief in the value of timeless design that lasts a lifetime.

Heal’s and ELVIS partnered with photographer Luke Kirwan and set constructors Cloud & Horse to build a 16 x 10-foot sculptural wall of chairs, all painted a uniform blue to form the backdrop for an iconic chair from the Heal’s collection.

The campaign line ‘Not all things are created equal’ is hand-painted across the wall of chairs as anamorphic text, revealed in stop frame motion in animated out-of-home, digital and social executions.

Behind the scenes of the Heal's campaign

The campaign features Arne Jacobsen’s iconic Egg Chair in luxury Walnut Grace leather, which first featured in a Heal’s campaign in 1967.

The sculptural backdrop was made from 100 second-hand chairs, and it took over 200 hours to create.

The push will run across print, digital out-of-home and digital and social channels.
