Idae, Unbreakable, Waterproof and Recyclable

View all 7 Photos

An architect without his sketchbook is like a traveler without his compass. But, Moleskine, watch your back! Now, adventurous architects can hit the hiking trail, the slopes, or the rafting rig armed with Idae, a notebook that is remarkably resilient to wear and tear. Produced by arcHITects, an Italian design studio, Idae features waterproof pages that can resist multiple dousing (and wringing!), while being a valid surface for pencils, pens and markers as tested in the promotional video. The 100% Italian product also has a place for threading a carabiner, allowing creatives to log their explorations and for explorers to express their creativity.
