2021: the launch of IQOS ILUMA in Japan

In Japan, the launch of IQOS ILUMA took place in an atmosphere of great curiosity and interest. On the day of the release of the new heated tobacco device, the media had access to an exclusive press conference where the product was presented. Subsequently, Japanese consumers were able to discover IQOS' latest innovation online, on the IQOS Japan website.

This was the first digital launch: in addition to completely renewing the IQOS Boutique with the new design and content dedicated to IQOS ILUMA, a pop-up store was also opened in the heart of Tokyo, in the famous Shibuya intersection. The initiative aroused great enthusiasm among Japanese IQOS users, offered them a memorable experience with the new ILUMA IQOS, and also intrigued adult smokers looking for an alternative to cigarettes, who were thus able to have a preview of the new and innovative range of devices without combustion.

 


2022: IQOS ILUMA arrives in Spain

After being launched in Japan and Switzerland in 2021, at the beginning of 2022 IQOS ILUMA also landed on the Spanish market, with an initiative entitled "Another Level": an immersive experience in which innovation, design, art and gastronomy have merged to create a unique presentation.

The launch night in Madrid was accompanied by a live art exhibition created by the artist Sfhir, who using cutting-edge techniques such as light painting created photoluminescent works. Light was also the protagonist of the event in the form of an enveloping rain of words in three-dimensional format, thanks to an artistic installation designed by the artist Rebeca Khamlichi.
