MERCI opened in March 2009 in the arty neighbourhood of Haut-Marais in Paris. More than just a retail project, it is a unique place, a destination store with 3 cafes and restaurants as well a very rich program of exhibitions and scenographies that made the reputation of Merci.
In 2009, MERCI selected this vintage ceiling tin as a décor concept for the Parisien store. Since the opening, there is not one day without seeing a visitor taking pictures of the MERCI tin counter or asking to buy it. This phenomenon has given MERCI the idea to get together with NLXL to design and market the wallpaper collection Brooklyn Tins.
