The Ride Launch Party Recap

At Gestalten Space
Posted by Angie—08/2013

Last Friday, The Ride: New Custom Motorcycles and Their Builders was launched at Gestalten Space in Berlin! It was a vrooming great evening filled with excitement, adrenaline, and laughter. Not only were we amazed by the coolest custom motorcycles by El Solitario, Ehinger Kraftrad, Wrenchmonkees, Kaffeemaschine, JvB-moto, and Herzbube displayed at Gestalten Space, but also by those exquisite ones parked outside in the backyard!

Here Gestalten.tv took the chance to meet with celebrated builders including Per Nielsen of Wrenchmonkees, Herzbube’s Bernhard Elflein, and photographer Kristina Fender.

If you missed the party, you can still visit the temporary garage this week. The show is still up and running until September 1, 2013.

Trachten featured in the May issue of Harper's Bazaar.

Trachten on DB mobil. “Das Buch ist eine Hommage an fast vergessene Traditionen vieler deutscher Regionen. Wie ein Farbrausch, prunkvoll und überwältigend, ziehen die Bilder den Betrachter in den Bann.”

Trachten featured in the April 17 edition of Süddeutsche Zeitung. “Trachten spielen wieder eine Rolle in der Mode: weil sie für Ursprünglichkeit stehen und ein wenig Weltflucht. (Dieser) Bildband feiert die Kleider-Kunstwerke…Eine Augenweide.”

Trachten in the April 19 edition of Welt am Sonntag. “Der Modefotograf Gregor Hohenberg reiste fünf Jahre lang durch Deutschland, um Menschen in Trachten zu porträtieren. Seine Bilder zeigen eine erstaunliche Vielfalt der Formen, Schnitte und Verzierungen – und sie erzählen von hoher Handwerkskunst.”

Imagine Architecture reviewed in the April/May issue of Cubes. "An interdisciplinary bridge for those who wish to seek inspiration beyond their field of architecture, photography or modern art."

The New Nomads featured on Milk Decoration.

Corso interviewed Sven Ehmann about The New Nomads.
