Merci, located in the heart of the historic Parisian district of Haut-Marais, is a magical place where people can shop for the best of fashion and design while enjoying Parisian hospitality in one of the store’s cosy catering facilities. To say thanks to all their creative talents, Merci offers a platform for young designers, and to say thanks to life itself, part of the company’s profits go to an endowment fund to finance education and development projects in Madagascar. And with that, their final ‘merci’ goes to all their customers who make this project possible.
When founder Axel met ceramic artist Roos van de Velde in 2009, he wasn’t aware that this encounter would change the future of his company forever. After the launch of her tableware collection, starred restaurants from all over the world suddenly lined up to order from Serax. Today, Serax is the number one reference for Michelin chefs to provide them with the necessary creative porcelain or ceramics that enhance the aesthetics of their dishes.
