Our Very First “Carphiles & Coffee” in Berlin
Last Sunday we had the absolute joy of celebrating our very first Carphiles & Coffee #instameet in Berlin. Despite the bad weather, we managed to make the best of it and we had a great time sharing our passion for classic cars. The Han Coffee Roasters team was with us, serving their exceptional Vietnamese coffee, that the guests enjoyed surrounded by a variety of selected, French, British, Swedish, Italian and German cars.
The location was a parking lot on the west side of Berlin; its two beautiful ramps were ideal in setting us up for the perfect photo of cars going up and down, Carphiles style. Some of the best Instagrammers of the city were invited, including a special visit from Copenhagen, for our meetup only!
Thanks to all our guests for making this happen and thanks to all the Carphiles team who helped create a nice atmosphere until the end. Here are some photos and my very first video, I hope you enjoy it. Looking forward to the next event.
Special thanks to Henry, Frank, Martin, and Stella to make this possible.
Looking forward to the next meetup!
On Sunday, June 19th, we celebrated the first Carphiles event of this year. In a typical Berlin industrial backyard in the Xberg area where our friends from @conciergecoffee are located! I selected 19 iconic cars to stage and appreciate them in different ways. Here we were both car lovers and non-car lovers which in a different way is my way to draw the attention of those who don’t have an interest in cars, especially these design icons.
I think that in almost all my photos I can show my great love, passion, and respect for architecture and cars. That’s why I could say that this shooting is one of the best I’ve ever done in the almost 7 years I’ve been specializing in cars. This time I was in one of the most prominent buildings of Swiss Brutalist architecture, combined with one of the great icons of the 80s, the Testarossa.
Everything comes to an end in some way, such as air-cooled engines or more recently the end of one of Europe’s most emblematic and modern airports of the 1970s: Berlin Tegel TXL.
