Opening of Paris Designweek | Meeting VIPP in Paris & Some news for my Dutch readers |


On my last night in Paris I went to the annual Party at the Merci store for the opening of the new design season and Paris design week. See some pictures of last years party here: Merci Y Design party & Meeting Paola Navone i will sort out some more pictures from the party gang tonight

I also met one of the lovely ladies from VIPP there who I previously met in Copenhagen, when we had the great styling challenge at their flagship store. You might remember the styling we did with the new bin VIPP launched in cooperation with Concept store Merci. 
So of course while being at Merci I had to have a closer look as there were even more sizes to admire. 

Next to being a super cool concept store, Merci is know for the its graphic design by studio be-pĂ´les on many of their items. Being a huge Merci fan, I have quite a collection of Merci goodies myself. This bin comes in a limited edition of 40 only! 





VIPP Online store in the Netherlands is now open! 

Good news for us who are in the Netherlands, the online shopping site www.vipp.com is now live to customers and fans throughout the Netherlands. The full Vipp product family of kitchen and bathroom accessories including the iconic Vipp pedal bin will be available to ship to anywhere in the Netherlands.


"Since 1939, Vipp has opened many new chapters in the company history. Making our high quality products available to the entire Dutch market is another important chapter in our journey that began with a single pedal bin in a small town in Denmark more than 70 years ago” says Jette Egelund, daughter of Holger Nielsen, who created the Vipp pedal.
Vipp specializes in functional tools for the kitchen and bathroom. Check them out!

I love those bins. Last time I went to Merci they weren't on display yet. I love the text on it. I guess I know by heart the one of the paper bag and the soap by now ;-) xx
