Moleskine presented its newly released “Writing Set” at Base, in the former Ansaldo Industrial building, in the heart of the Tortona district,

Base is the new Milanese centre for culture and creativity with co-working spaces, events and workshops enclosed in 6000 sq mtrs of former industrial space. An eco-system which puts the culture at the centre of decision processes, as a key to understand and interpret the world and its evolutions

Milan Design Week transforms the city, where the Moleskine brand was born, into an open-air feast of creativity.

This year Moleskine is celebrating the Milan Design Week with a series of workshops, storytelling activities and experiences tied to the launch of the Smart Writing Set – a new way to organize your time and ideas created by Moleskine.

The “Writing Set” system consists of –

A Paper Tablet designed by Giulio Iacchetti, a paper notebook with rounded edges that make it look like a tablet, and a special card that allows the digitization of writings and drawings;

A Moleskine Pen, thin aluminum and equipped with a tiny camera that is capable of digitizing what we draw on paper and

Moleskine Notes App, the application that allows you to save, share, edit, search, and export our notes and sketches.

Three elements that are integrated with one another to offer a whole new experience.
