Moleskine Café, Brera Design District

On note: creative-friendly Milan brand Moleskine debut their new café concept in the Brera Design District...

Harking back to the literary cafés of the Age of Enlightenment — a philosophical movement that dominated the world of ideas in Europe in the 18th century — the Moleskine Café fuses café, art gallery, store, and library under one very modern roof.

Moleskine Café Milan, Brera Design District

Located in the Brera Design District of Milan (the hometown of the world-famous notebook), the café is set over two-levels with floor-to-ceiling windows, clean aesthetics, and a contemporary colour palette of neutral colours; visitors in contact with a mix of energising and soothing experiences depending on where they choose to pass a little time.

A concept devised in collaboration with brand consultancy Interbrand, the ground floor bar serves coffee by Milan-based coffee roaster Sevengrams — served in Moleskine cups and mugs — and is a sure fire way to kickstart your day’s note-scribbling. Art shows and workshops take place year round, and an outside terrace opens up onto quartiere’s design-conscious streets — whilst, in contrast, the mezzanine adorned with sofas is a spot for relaxation, musing, and hushed conversations.

The first of a new concept (following a pilot Moleskine Café in Geneva Airport) that is set to be rolled out internationally, CEO Arrigo Berni boldly declares: ‘it’s an important new step in our journey to realise the full potential of Moleskine as the lifestyle brand of the creative class.’ We’re making a note of it.
