IKEA (part of the Ingka Group), the world’s leading Swedish home furnishings retailer has installed the iconic IKEA Navigation Tower and the Wordmark at the IKEA store site in Navi Mumbai, Turbhe, Maharashtra.
The 5 lakh+ sq ft IKEA store will inspire people with more than 7,000 beautiful, affordable, good quality, sustainable and well-designed home furnishing products along with ideas and inspirations for the home. The store is located on the Thane-Belapur Road, approximately 600 mts from the Turbhe Station.
The free-standing Navigation Tower and IKEA’s distinctive blue and yellow Wordmark are a part of the store site making it a highly visible, visual expression of the IKEA concept.
