Why does Moleskine keep doing it?
The problem is, the nearest Moleskine Store to me in Atlanta is about 1,000 miles away in New York City.
This is killing me!
I'm a big Moleskine fan in terms of quality of product and in terms of how they embrace the latest technology in their product lines.
Moleskine does a great job describing what can be expected when you enter a Moleskine Store:
The store design mirrors the elegance and simplicity of the Moleskine notebook: the classic black rectangle is reimagined as an open platform for creativity in a physical space. A map covers the floor, symbolizing the mobile identity of contemporary nomads. An experience table allows visitors to interact with different tools to find the one which suits them best. Some stores will house a Stamp Station, an interactive customization area for recording travel memories.
Moleskine Stores are more than just notepads and journals. Many of these stores are in train stations and in airports- that's a great idea.
"Stations and airports are places suspended in time and space but full of energy," said Maria Sebregondi, VP of Brand Equity and Communications at Moleskine. "Their very existence hinges between an arrival and a departure time, between point A and point B. Here is where we can meet our audience in a mental state very much in line with Moleskine values: designing open platforms for creativity, travelling and cultural exploration."
By reading that, I have to think a Moleskine Store is coming to Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in the near future.
It is the world's busiest airport. It's also the airport I fly out of each month.
I promise I'm not being selfish.
