Moleskine Unveils New Tools for Cultural Pleasure and Mobile Living
Bags, pens, booklights and other accessories round out offerings for the contemporary nomad

What you are, you carry with you. We carry the house of our souls like the tortoise its shell.
Andrei Tarkovsky, "Interviews"

For Immediate Release and Preview... Moleskine introduces three new collections dedicated to Writing, Traveling, and Reading. They include bags, pens, pencils, reading glasses, cases, reading stands and USB rechargeable booklights. They will join the existing collections of legendary Moleskine notebooks and planners as a complete set of tools for cultural pleasure and mobile living.

Designed by Giulio Iacchetti, the objects are designed to be perfectly compatible with each other and with the Moleskine notebooks and planners through special clips and holders. Detachable add-ons make them customizable, adaptable to different inclinations, self-contained kits for the contemporary nomad. The new accessories retain many of the familiar features of the Moleskine brand: elastic band, smooth and rounded corners, black color,and essential, contemporary-classic aesthetics.

The three new collections will be first presented to the public during the Salone del Mobile in Milan in April 2011, and at ICFF in New York in May 2011. The Writing, Travelling, and Reading Collections will be available in bookshops, department stores and design stores worldwide starting from April 2011.

Giulio Iacchetti (born 1966) combines professional activity with teaching in various international universities. With the Moscardino, the multiuse biodegradable kitchen utensil he won the Compasso d'Oro prize in 2001. This object became part of the permanent design collection of MoMA New York. In May 2009 the Milan Triennale held a solo show of his work entitled "Giulio Iacchetti. Disobedient Objects".

Hi-res photos of Giulio Iacchetti's drawings available on request starting from now.
