Henge won the title of Wallpaper* Design Awards 2019 winner for the “Best earth tones” category with the Be Mine coffee table designed by Massimo Castagna, the brand’s artistic director and creative guide.
The coveted award given by the renowned magazine Wallpaper* celebrates objects, places, and people that have represented “the best of 2018”. Not only architects and designers but also stylists and creative individuals who have distinguished themselves for their innovation are celebrated as reference points for design, fashion, food, and the global lifestyle.
This recognition is very valuable for Henge and its artistic director Massimo Castagna, who consolidates the brand’s identity on an international level. The new Be Mine coffee table awarded by Wallpaper* is the evolution of the one presented in 2017 in application with sofa seats or with the D-Code table.
Designed to be central in the living area, the Be Mine table evolves from its original application, with edges in the iconic jagged shape, made in XL dimensions of 160×70 cm and 180×70 cm. Along with the polished brass or silver finishes, the construction is completed using the ground casting method.
The standard rectangular shape of the new XL version also provides another pairing with the Touch table, expanding the functions and possible uses. The modular object can be customized based on different needs and contexts. At the same time, it goes beyond the mere purpose of a piece of furniture by representing the brand’s philosophy and creative director.
Rare materials and manufacturing techniques, refined finishes, unusual dimensions and combinations, and material research are the foundation from which Henge takes its steps and thinks of its collections. Objects like the Be Mine table that contain a set of special features soar beyond their own function and become a real piece of contemporary art.
