A place to boost creative inspiration and productivity, this original café format takes the Moleskine brand into a new dimension.
The Moleskine Café opens at Corso Garibaldi 65, in the heart of the Design District of Brera in Milan. This new retail format, designed and developed in partnership with Interbrand, represents a natural evolution for a brand dedicated to creating content and building cultural experiences. For this experience, Interbrand and Moleskine developed the positioning strategy ‘Inspiring Journeys’, which encompasses the brand’s strong tie to culture and travel. This strategy guides the brand in the development of its new collections and the creation of experience formats such as the Moleskine Café.

A new urban café in Montreux was created as a place where celebration and everyday life go hand in hand. The café fits into the life of local community and becomes a new meeting place. All the attributes of the restaurant are introduced and installed within the preserved historic envelope. The feeling of the temporary installation is further articulated by the chosen materials. Concrete and aged wood are juxtaposed to the white background. The key note is played by the perforated concrete wall that visually unites the entire space of the restaurant and serves a number of functions: wardrobe, bar showcase, kitchen work area, furniture storage facility. The wall also works as a construction kit that allows endless combinations of various objects helping to generate fresh messages to the visitors. As a result, a flexible environment is created that reacts to ever-changing trends and events. Interestingly, although the fitting of the restaurant was entirely produced in Ukraine, with the only exception of Danish j77 chairs, this fact didn’t prevent the sophisticated Swiss audience from accepting the newly-created place with utmost loyalty.

Smart use of space
All Urby apartments feel larger than they are as a result of smart use of the available space. Despite being compact, the units are built with an optimal flow and spatial balance in mind. Sliding doors between connecting spaces let residents fully open up the apartment and experience its full size and sense of space. All apartments boast windows across the full width of the units. Combined with a straightforward design and use of light colours, the large windows bring daylight and a sense of spaciousness deep into the apartments, while at the same time offering panoramic views.

Cafés, restaurants, libraries and the likes have become indubitable extensions of our own homes. In this particular occasion, LATITUDE was commissioned to explore the possibilities of extending the public realm into a standard café organized into two floors and a terrace.
By removing the entrance façade, the first floor was opened up, thus becoming an extension of the outside space. Inside, visitors can find two areas: the fast (come-and-go) area and the relaxed (sitting down) area. The first one features high tables and chairs next to the service desk –a longitudinal lighting box wrapped in white glass–. The second area portrays low tables, chairs and a bench zone. These two areas are divided by steel made longitudinal furniture that incorporates an orchestrated disposition of mirrors and projectors to create a visual illusion.

The design for BuonaBocca winebar in Beijing revolves around the use of the brick as central decorative element. We were playing with local cheap materials and with the existing condition of the space to make the most out of it. In particular, we were creating some brick patterns on wall based on our “Hutong Material Catalogue” research that were recently developed for the last edition of Beijing Design Week 2015. We were also designing logo and V.I., customized furniture and two large geometric custom-made chandeliers to evoke the surprise and festivity feeling of the town festivals in south of Italy.
