At the 2018 edition of the Milan Design Week Henge presents a selection of furniture and accessories in three prestigious locations: a booth at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile; the Atelier in via della Spiga dedicated to customization and an exhibition space in via Durini, Milan’s heart of design.
The precious hands of Henge’s master craftsmen combined with a continuous research has allowed the brand to bring ancient techniques back to life – such as briar-root micro-mosaics or special handmade fusions – and new original materials, as the exclusively selected black lake stone or fossil woods.
The evolution of the identity of the brand, headed by the Creative Director Massimo Castagna, is oriented towards the perfection of materials and uniqueness of creations, recoiling from the mere function of furniture, transforming into a manifesto of a cognitive and experimental path dedicated to the excellence of craftsmanship, which it integrates to adapt to different sectors, such as fine jewelry.
Henge presents over 30 new products in Milan, including the Oxymoron Table and the Starlight lamp.
Oxymoron Table is the protagonist of the new designs created for the dining area. The table, characterized by an organic shape, features a large handmade briar-root mosaic top standing on antiqued cast bronze legs that are directly incorporated into it. Henge lamps are lighting architectures that fill the wide aerial volumes. The new Starlight is an example of an antiqued cast bronze lighting architecture composed of “Y” shaped arms arranged on two levels. Available also in the chandelier version, the lamp is presented in the booth at the Salone del Mobile as a scenic suspended horizontal composition.
Through completely customizable and often modular products, Henge expands the boundaries of design, intentionally straying from the limitations imposed by serial industrial productions. The catalogue becomes the starting point for endless compositional harmonies, whose codes communicate with rare techniques and materials, precious finishing, non-standard dimensions and combinations.
