The lightings from the Italian brand In-es.artdesign have been chosen, by the also Italian, historical brand Moleskine, for lighting all of their stores, present in United States, Asia and Europe. They chose the pendants Mezza Luna 1 (70 cm diameter) and Mezza luna 2 (120 cm diameter) with a smooth black exterior and white interior. These lightings are elegant and minimal at the same time and represent perfectly Moleskine’s style. In fact the two brands have many points in common, even though they produce completely different types of products.
For In-es.artdesign, lighting is a form of art. Mixing art and design is an art in and of itself—and one that is difficult to pull off. Italian artist and designer Oçilunam founded In-es.artdesign in 2003 to make it happen. His interior accessories radiate pure creativity with an irresistible allure, balancing an interplay of light and shadow with immaculate color and material contrasts.
These illuminating tones have garnered the designer international recognition, highlighting a unique mix of tension and clarity that pulls art and design into a beautifully coherent whole.
Moleskine was born from the experience of Modo & Modo, the small publisher who in 1997 registered the Moleskine brand, the company has brought back to life the legendary notebook. In January 2007 Moleskine Srl acquired the rights of the brand internationally and in 2013 the company was listed on the Milan Stock Exchange.
Moleskine is a constantly growing creative company. It has about 450 employees and an extensive network of partners and consultants.
The Moleskine Store in Rome Termini Station is a place of great inspiration, a melting pot of products designed for creative minds, writers, managers and musicians. Minimal and elegant lines, that perfectly match those of the black and white Mezza luna pendants by In-es.artdesign, make the famous notebooks a real must for dreamers or career men. A wide range of notepads, diaries, notebooks and bags for those who live his Moleskine as a life and travel companion!
