The Moleskine Café is a brand new format that reinterprets the idea of the café littéraire in a very contemporary mood.
Mixing elements of the café, art gallery, store and library, it supplies energy for boosting creativity as well as space for deep thinking and relaxation. The sofa area in the mezzanine is for reading, working and quiet conversations; the bar on the ground floor is where energizing coffee is served, also offering art shows, talks, workshops, books and notebooks. Outside, a terrace opens up to the spectacle of city streets. For your daily fix of inspiration
The Moleskine Café at Corso Garibaldi 65 in the Brera Design District of the hometown of Moleskine, Milan, is ready to be replicated in global cities worldwide.
The interior of the café is designed à la Moleskine: essential, clean aesthetics and a contemporary colour palette of neutral shades, just like the ivory colour of a Moleskine notebook, for a tranquil mood that facilitates privacy as well as conversation. Just like the iconic Moleskine notebook, that was inspired by the notebooks used by the avant-garde artists of the last century, the Moleskine Café revisits an idea from the past. There is a strong connection to the literary cafés of the era of Enlightenment, the unofficial public spaces where conversations were held about the important ideas of the time, which became hubs of cultural, artistic and political life in Europe’s great cities.
