Livat Changsha Grand Opening

Livat’s trademark European-style sustainable multi-functional mall experience arrived in Hunan, China with the opening of a new centre in Changsha in July 2021.

Always anchored by an IKEA store, Livat malls are designed around more than just shopping, entertainment and food; they also lend themselves to leisure and socialising. The new location is set to become a popular spot for the community and tourists to meet and enjoy their Scandinavian style surroundings.


Pico has long supported Livat as it creates diverse, interactive, immersive experiences for its visitors. Appointed to activate Livat Changsha’s grand opening, the team organized and managed an entertainment programme that included a mini-concert as well as talent and magic shows. Overall event planning and operation services were also provided, ensuring that everything proceeded smoothly.

Bringing their design, construction and event activation expertise into focus, the team fabricated ‘Flying House’, ‘IKEA Treehouse’, ‘Tree Hole’ and ‘Dreaming Bubbles’ themed selfie spots, all of which proved a hit with the opening day crowds. Another attraction was the ‘Power Lighthouse’, which visitors could electrify sustainably by pedaling a bicycle-powered generator.
