Merci opened in march 2009 in the arty neighborhood of Haut-Marais in Paris. More than just a retail project, it is a unique place, a destination store with 3 cafés and restaurants as well a very rich programme of exhibitions and scenographies that made the reputation of Merci.
Jean-Luc Colonna d'Istria of Merci: "In 2009, Merci selected this vintage ceiling tins as a decor concept for the Parisien store. Since the opening, there is no 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."
Historically, tin ceillings were introduced to North America as an affordable alternative to the exquisite plaster work used in European homes. It was between 1890 and 1930 that thin rolled tin-plates were being mass-produced. Today the irregularity and the aging give all the appeal to this American architecture icon.
NLXL Founder Rick Vintage has a background in interior design. In 2005 he imported pressed tin plates for a restaurant project in the Netherlands. "Ever since we installed these tins I knew we had to do something with this beautiful product. At one of the famous parties during the Paris Design Week in january 2012 Daniel Rozensztroch (photo), art director of Merci asked us if we were interested to make a wallpaper collection based on vintage tins. Brooklyn Tins was born. I think the collection shows the pleasure we have had in working together on this project."
