Coffee Surfing was born of the collaboration of the photographer Gabriele Galimberti with illycaffè and records universal and inspiring personal stories as recounted by illy coffee lovers worldwide. The first two editions of the Project were given over to the topics of happiness and reawakenings, calling forth intimate, profound and captivating stories from participants, over a cup of coffee.
The theme of the new edition of Coffee Surfing is dreams and it was launched at the same time as Milan Design Week 2015, in the illyartlab area at the Milan Triennale. Over 600 people have had their picture taken there by Gabriele Galimberti, on a photographic set staged specially for the occasion. The photos are printed in real time and each person has described their dream by writing it on the back of their photo.
But that’s not all, we are scheduling new stops to meet more dreamers.
