MERCI Pop Up Store - Salone 2012 {Paola Navone limited edition for MERCI}


Being a big fan of the MERCI Concept Store in Paris, my heart made a little jump seeing a little red fiat cinquecento in front of Studio Otto di Paola Navone. And it even got better!

Ofcourse seeing a MERCI Pop up Store in Via Tortona during the Salone is like a big and pleasant surprise to me but having one of my favorite designers making a limited Edition especially for MERCI and show it here at Studio Otto was really great.

I loved the mono graphic design of the outdoor - indoor furniture in front of the studio... Lots of dots and stripes and  soft cushions. And inside there was even more, a whole collection of tableware, clothes, buttons,masking tape, little baskets and suitcases ...all in black and white and especially made for MERCI by Paola Navone. And of course there was also a mini MERCI inside!

I can truly say this was one of the highlights for me during the Salone 2012. To bad to see I had written the opening party of the Pop up store in my agenda when I got home.... I better not hear I missed meeting Paola Navone in person...

Enjoy the pictures and forgive me for making such a long post.. I thought it was just way to cool and despite all the beautiful design I finally found some new ideas and inspiration there! I brought home some little things of the limited edition... and would love to get one of the chairs...Mmmm I just might need to go to Paris really soon!

It was great to see it, isn't it? Like this design and simplicity! Btw. There is a troley in a second picture and sign @SKODA' on it. Skoda are the czech cars as you probably know, but the meaning of the word SKODA is 'pity'. So maybe it is a secret comment on your picture about missed party ...
