Following the success of its cafe in Milan, which launched in 2016, Italy’s Moleskine stationery brand has opened a second outlet – in Beijing’s Taikoo Li shopping centre.
It continues the minimalist concept with neutral colours, space and natural light. The open-concept 150sqm cafe offers individual and communal tables, including an al-fresco area.
Like its Milan predecessor, it is a combination of cafe, gallery, library and store, reports Concrete Playground. The menu combines Italian and local cuisine across breakfast and lunch options.
As well, the cafe will stage exhibitions dedicated to architects, designers, illustrators and movie directors, as well as events, talks and workshops.
Cafes for Hamburg, London and New York are also planned this year.
